ARCHIVES: 2 Maori mentions in historic US papers

ARCHIVES: 2 Maori mentions in historic US papers

Morena whanau.  Over the past couple weeks, we have been visiting whanau here in California.  During the quiet times, we have conducted a little online research and came across 2 choicely interesting Maori historical references. Anei te whakamarama:

New Zealand gives LBJ colorful welcome

The first is an article from ‘The Free Lance Star’, the newspaper for Fredeicksberg, Virginia.  It is a newspaper piece from Wednesday Oct the 19th, 1966 and covers the Pacific tour of President Lyndon Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson.  It reads that no US President had visited the protectorate of Pagopago, that Hawaii and American Samoa welcomed the delegartion with nice receptions and that the pohiri in Wellington was well received.  Not sure who the Kaiwero in the photo is but we’ll ask around.

Fierce Maori Warriors Drive Axis Desert Army Back with Bayonet Charge 

The next article from The Palm Beach Post (Florida), Tuesday July 7th 1942 heralds the acts of the 28th Maori Battalion and their heroic deeds in El Alamein.  Many of us grew up with the stories of this very charge, directly into the jaws of the German Nazi Armoured Divisions, who themselves were led by the feared and admired Rommell.  American reports point out the Maori tactical brilliance in regaining the momentum for the British, a terrifying bayonet charge, leading to the momentum swing back to the Aliies – so hats off to our brave kaumatua and respect to Florida for reporting as such.

    Everyone wants cheap bait these days but the big problem is
    that cheap often means rubbish. Connect “A’s” positive
    terminal to “B’s” negative terminal. Freshwater fish can be placed in the live

    you are able to clean it.
