About the artist
“My visit to this spot, for the purpose of making the drawing of the tomb … was made from the water by stealth, and was attended with some difficulty and danger,” George French Angas later recalled about sketching here in 1844. Huriwhenua was a rangatira (chief) of Ngāti Rāhiri, Te Atiawa (allied to Ngāti Toa) and had been a signatory of the Treaty of Waitangi in this location four years earlier.
