Kiingi Koroki, the 5th Maori Monarch seated with his wife Te Atairangikaahu to the far left, the Governor General of New Zealand seated to her left and his wife seated to the left of Kiingi Koroki. Te Puea Herangi (a daugther of the 2nd Maori King Tawhiao) sits in front at the feet of the Maori King.

FYI - this is a position of honour and spiritual guardianship. Her presence at the feet of the King and in front of him is to help ward of any bad energy (for want of a better phrase) that my be directed at him.



Another view of Mahinarangi and Turongo which with Raukawa Iti form the official residence of the Maori King or Queen at Turangawaewae Marae. This is a small and humble home and reflects the tribes weakened economic position...something that is only being rectified now several decades later.

Tongan Royalty visit Maori Queen

Here we see the current King of Tonga and his sister and brother visit the residence of the Maori Queen to pay tribute to her on the first anniversary of her coronation. This is an annual event.

Members of the Order of New Zealand. HM the Queen and Te Arikinui Te Atairangikaahu sit in front. Te Ata was the first inductee of the newly established order in 1987 with her badge bearing the number 1.

Kiingi Koroki (centre with head down) travelling with his retinue to open a carved house on the Kapiti Coast in 1936. His wife stands next to him wearing a head scarfe and shawl and is also looking down.



Leaving the carved house with the Prime Minister, Josepth Savage.

The iconic photo of the casket of Kiingi Koroki being carried to the summit of Taupiri reserved as the resting place for the high ranking royalty.

Revolt brewing against Maori King | NATIONAL News

This has yet to be verified by reliable sources but if this is the case then the King will have a fight on his hand. If he continues to act like an Absolute Sovereign then his people will eventually ignore him, curb his powers further and possibly cut off or severely limit the finances to him and his family.

It makes my heart weep to compare the antics of the King and his family to that of his blessed mother the late Te Arikinui Te Atairangikaahu. Her grace, and poise and elegance earned her the love and admiration of her people...hence their nickname for her, The Lady.

Kiingi Tuheitia will either bring about his own demise or the demise of the entire King Movement. I say if he threatens to abdicate again...let him. It should be passed onto his cousin Nanaia Mahuta whose father was a brother to the late Te Atairangikaahu.
