The Curse of Hereiwi, and the Stronger Medicine of Christian Missionary Octavius Hadfield.

One of the books I am currently reading on New Zealand colonial history is a biography on the extraordinary man, and Christian missionary to the Taranaki-Kapiti region Octavius Hadfield by Barbara Macmorran.

Hadfield is one of a generation of truly great English men and Christians who were as brave as lions, and guided by the highest of Christian humanitarian values

This is the first short review of portions of this book that together hopefully will highlight various important aspects of Missionary activities and interactions with Native Maori as they were when New Zealand became a colony of the British Empire.

I hope these blogpost form a valuable source of references to be used to combat fake revisionist history with paints Collonisation in an evil light, and also gives concrete facts to the greatness of the Christian missionaries who came here in the early days of the 19th century.

Hadfield was a young man in his 20s when he first arrived in New Zealand. He was a man of strong faith, Iron resolve, yet weak physically due to health troubles.
This is a man who was willing to be left alone hundreds of miles away from the center where his fellow countrymen and missionaries were… to live among Cannibal Maori… including one of the Most notorious Cannibal Chiefs of them all Te Rauparaha. The Guy who wrote the Famous Haka ‘Kai Mate’… ‘Eat you when you’re dead’ . (This haka has been changed to ‘Ka mate’ to hide its true meaning).


Te Raupraha.

Hadfield stood eye to eye with this Fierce Warrior Chief and commanded his respect.
When you contemplate how much bravery It would take to do this you begin to understand how the British people are indominable in spirit and how this Nature was further energized by a powerful Christian faith and sense of purpose.
Only by such Towering character and committed Christian conviction were such men as Hadfield able to match their personal Mana with those of the Great Chiefs of those times who were experts at spotting and exploiting Weakness and fear.

I will develop this theme further yet for now I want to talk about an interesting happening between Hadfield and a ‘Troublesome Chief’ whom had taken a disliking to Hadfield and had started becoming a nuisance at Hadfield’s Sunday services.
This would have happened in 1840…

I will quote the passage….

‘In “Maoris of Bygone days” Hadfield related a story about the chief next in rank to Te Whatanui at Otaki, Matenga Te Matia. Sometimes on a Sunday when Hadfield was holding a service this chief would come “for the purpose of making a noise and interrupting us. On one occasion this interruption went rather too far.” The next day Hadfield visited the chief “for the purposes of remonstrating with him. I found him in his garden with several of his people. But he took no notice of me. So I sat down on the ground and thoughtlessly took up a piece of Kumara and bit it. This was on my part an infraction of a tapu. It afforded him an opportunity, which perhaps he had been looking for, of ridding himself of me and my proceedings. He rushed at me with his tomahawk, and was about to strike me as I sat on the ground, when his daughter and the son of a chief immediately came and placed themselves between me and my assailant, placing their hands over my head so that it became impossible for him to strike me without first striking them. Other then came forward. After some time his rage abated, and he sat down.
I then endeavored to explain that I, a foreigner who had not been long among them, was not aware that I was doing anything offensive.
But before I could finish my explanation the Maori priest, Hereiwi, who had gone through his karakia making the Kumara ground tapu, interrupted by pronouncing a curse upon me which was necessarily to lead to my death, or my removal from Otaki. I told him his curse would neither affect my life nor influence my proceedings, but was much more likely to injure him.
I then left them. Early next morning I went to Waikanae. On my return after a few days I learnt that Hereiwi had died during the night after the affair in the kumera garden.
This produced a profound impression on the Maoris, who attributed his death to his cursing me. In vain I endeavored to explain that I had herd from some Englishmen who knew him that he had been suffering from a complaint in his lungs, and that his death was occasioned by the rupture of a large Blood vessel. Not altogether convinced they resolved not to meddle any more with me, but to allow me in future to disregard all their tapu ceremonies, and go where I liked. After that Te Matia and I were on friendly terms, at least we lived in peace.”

Octavius Hadfield. by Barbara Macmorran pg 24-25.


‘Thoughts of a Tohunga’ by By Charles F Goldie. 1933.

‘Maori Priest’ = Tohunga. See Wikipedia here.

So many interesting things within this short passage describing the interaction of two different worlds.
Here we see the sort of Man Hadfield was… Bold enough to go find this ‘troublesome Chief’ seeking to have a man to man talk to sort out the problem.
Here we see the darkness of the Savage existence in which Maori thinking was wrapped up… so that it was thought a visitor picking up a piece of Kumera and taking a bite was grounds enough to attack and kill him!

And I cannot help also to marvel at the supernatural showdown between the Maori Curse and the superior Spiritual power of Christ!

Some skeptics will argue that what happened to Hereiwi was pure coincidence… and yet the Maori who were witnesses to this decided there was more to it than that!
And anyone who has read a decent amount of New Zealand history will tell you about recorded supernatural events that happened.
Two others come to my mind, one is of the omen… the appearance of the phantom canoe on Lake Tarawera before the eruption which My Ancestor Guide Sophia saw and raised the alarm… saving many peoples lives.

Another one is the weird story of the Tohunga who was at Ruapekepeka Pa when the British brought up a new weapon… a Rocket to attack the Pa, and this cause the Maori to lose heart, yet the Tohunga said the Rocket would do no harm.
And it turned out to be correct as when the British fired the rocket, to spiraled off course and indeed cause no harm. When this was the result, the Tohunga was credited.

Now in all these events I do not make emphatic claims that ‘Supernatural’ things occurred, I simply wish to highlight these events are recorded in history and did happen.
What is interesting is that Atheist materialists are *forced* to say all such things are mere coincidental… as the tenets of their own faith and world view do not allow them the license to even contemplate the possibility that something supernatural in fact occurred. They have no facts, or evidence to support their judgment… they simply assume they are right.
Myself as a Christian I am neither forced to assume the events were super-natural, or not. Yet I am not forced to deny the possibility by my world view.
One thing I can say is standing in Hadfield’s shoes and have had a witchdoctor cast a curse upon him, I appreciate his response, as one of Victory in Christ… the assurance that No Curse of the devil is as potent as Gods Divine grace, protection, and providence under which Hadfield had Boldly left Civilisation and travelled to the utmost parts of the Globe to where Headhunting Cannibals and Dark evil superstitions abound… to do the Lords work and to preach Love and salvation to these poor wretches living in darkness and savagery!
Hadfield’s Faith was his strength… and the curse fell upon him who had uttered it.

And though many of my readers do not at all appreciate this fact… today Maori Curses are still a thing!
A ‘Makutu’ can be uttered against a person still today… and yet The Christian still can find Divine protection in Christ.
“Greater is he who is in you, than he who is in the world.” 1john4vs4.

Read Wikipedia ‘Makutu’ here.

“Another story [about Hadfield] on the same theme was published in the Marlborough Press in an obituary notice, December 14 1904. “Throughout his life, his mana over the Maoris was perhaps greater than any other man’s. Not merely in spiritual matters, but in political directions, it was exercised and feared. Archdeacon Stock used to tell how it was greatly strengthened. In the early days of the Wellington colony, Mr Hadfield was constantly appealed to as an umpire in ever-recurring land troubles, and had in one instance given a decision which greatly offended some West coast Maoris.
Returning from a pastoral visit to Wellington, as he passed through a Pa in the neighbourhood of Porirua, he was met by the chief and Tohunga, who upbraided him in the most violent terms, worked themselves up into a frenzy of excitement which agrivated heart troubles, and as they were pelting him with oratical invective- cursing him up hill and down dale- both dropped dead.
Henceforward, the awe-stricken Maoris regarded him as under the special protection of an all powerful Atua, whom it was death to offend!
All through the war and the Hau-Hau troubles, the Archdeacon travelled here, there, and everywhere, risking at every turn the fate that befell Volkner and others, but absolutely undeterred by dangers.”
Pg25-26. Octavius Hadfield by Barbara Macmorran.

Today, the only way Maori radicals are able to spread their vile falsehoods about the missionaries and colonisation in general is because of an overwhelming ignorance among the population of New Zealanders about *what really happened*.
The Missionaries risked everything to bring Salvation via the light of the gospel to Maori, the gospel that broke down tribal divisions, and united the Maori people with the Pakeha as Brothers and sisters in Christ.
We can easily discern the spirit of anti-Christ working within the Maori separatist movement spreading lies and slander against the integrity of these truly great and noble men, turning Maori away from Christ and the spirit of peace and goodwill… back into the darkness of tribalism and racial separatism.

Very very suspect election results for the South Island.

Otago Daily Times Read article here

Something fishy going on down in the Mainland with the election results!
The Otargo Daily Times reports that Labour won the party vote *in all 17* South Island electorates!
That is a high statistical improbability in it’s own right, yet the situation gets even more shady when you see how many Electorate seats National actually won down there.

See below….
Party vote stats from Otago daily times.
Electorate Seats stats from TV 1 news Election results

The first numbers compare Labour’s Party vote wins over National in each electorate, yet I have added the Electorate votes after these in the seats that National actually won… and I would expect *National* to have also had the greater number of electorate votes in these electorates… yet apparently though the electorate voted predominately National for the candidate they split their vote and voted predominately Labour for the party vote????
In every single electorate????
IMO this is sus!

Nelson: Labour 20,564 – National 8418
West Coast Tasman: Labour 17,859 – National 9974
Kaikoura: Labour 16,561 – National 11,538… yet National Party’s Stuart Smith won the seat 16105 votes to Labour’s Matt Flight’s 13823.

Waimakariri: Labour 20,222 – National 11,720… yet National party’s Matt Doocey won the seat 19236 votes to Labour’s Dan Rosewarne 17260

Christchurch East: Labour 20,302 National 5779
Ilam: Labour 15,875 National 11,011
Christchurch Central: Labour 17,467 National 6648
Banks Peninsula: Labour 21,302 National 9166

Selwyn: Labour 15,293 National 12,908… yet National party’s Nicola Grigg won the seat 18578 to Labour’s Reuben Davidson 13635

Wigram: Labour 17,653 National 7033
Rangitata: Labour 18,531 National 12,244

Waitaki: Labour 17,058 National 12,330…. yet the National party’s Jacqui Dean won the seat 17615votes to Labour’s Liam Wairepo’s 14470

Dunedin: Labour 21,625 Green 7001 National 5514
Taieri: Labour 23,210 National 8505

Southland: Labour 13,359 National 12,777… yet National party’s Joseph Mooney won the seat 17817votes to Labour’s Jon Mitchell’s 12741

Invercargill: Labour 17,050 National 10,873… yet National party’s Penny Simmonds won the seat 16372 to Labour’s Liz Craig’s 15687

Te Tai Tonga: Labour 13,056 Green 2597 Maori 1838

So from my cursory investigations National won in 6 electorates… yet still lost to Labour in all 6 with regards to that Electorate’s party votes.

That Labour would score higher than National on party votes in all 6 electorates where National candidates won the seats appears to be *very counter intuitive* and smacks of election Fraud!
Which is a real thing people… esp when we are talking about Power Mad Lefty Globalists.
I would hope the National party has people looking into this very odd result.

Talking about how it possibly could have occurred the first and most obvious would be some sort of Computer hack/ corrupted program, yet the fact that this election was notable for it’s very early Pre-election voting means scrutinizing the booths would be very hard… esp for minor parties… more opportunity for Fraud… and the fact that we are told record numbers of Kiwi chose to vote early (69% of the total vote) could also be an opportunity for fraud… and then I have herd rumors of a high number of invalidated votes… which party suffered the most from these invalidated votes?
Also the number of people claimed to have voted this election is quite absurdly high… 82.5% of enrolled voters a total pool of itself that is 92.5% of all eligible voters. Maybe this excessively high voter count also hides many fraudulent votes?
I don’t profess to know, yet IMO the numbers for the South Island look Dodgy as.

And If there is good reason to be suspicious of the reported Election results of the South Island, that opens up the question to how trustworthy are the reported results for the North Island?

Can other anomalies be discerned in the results there too?
I have not checked, yet I would not be surprised if an erudite investigator can find other oddities there too.???

Tim Wikiriwhi.

Update: I have now read that it is claimed that Labour won the Party vote in 68/72 total electorate seats… and that is *super strange* given National won 26 Electorate seats so that would mean that of the 26 Seats only 4 electorates gave a majority of party votes to National!
It is very possible we are witnessing Election fraud on a grand scale.

The media have started trying to make sense of the strange election results, rationalising away with such misleading titled articles as this one… ‘Election 2020: Federated Farmers want Labour to govern alone’…. which assumes Famers actually wanted Labour to govern!
Well that I guess would be what you must assume if you are not prepared to contemplate the fact that the numbers actually might be better explained by election fraud.
But let’s be real… The sycophantic media are in Ardern’s pocket… bought and paid for… they are the last people New Zealanders can rely on.
In the estatic throes of Ardern worship the last thing our hopeless journos are contemplating is that the numbers could evidence something sinister.
What the article should headline…’Farmers hope to God Ardern does not make a deal with the Green Party!”… and therein lies the crux of why it is absurd to think the farmers really did vote Labour as that definitely exposes them to the Far left Anti-Farming Agenda!

The article is full of crap yet one line sticks out above the rest…

“Temuka dairy farmer Andy Palmer said he was shocked by the result for his electorate, Rangitata but not the overall Labour win.”

That says it all… and people should be shocked because it does not add up.

20-10-20
Here we have yet another Media article attempting to come to grips with the results.

Read ‘Election 2020: 20 fascinating facts about the 2020 election you might have missed’

These ‘fascinating facts’ when you do the math ought to make any thinking person question *Is this evidence of Election hacking?*

“…Labour won the party vote 68 of the 72 electorates in the country, meaning it lost the party vote in just four seats this election – a record high for Labour…”

That is not simply ‘a record high’… it smacks of tampering!
At the very least an investigation needs to be carried out!
The numbers are so extreme as to be highly improbable!
9 times out of 10 wild numbers like this indicates something is awry.

And of the ’20 fascinating facts’ what we don’t see is any mention or clear analysis of how many votes were deemed ‘invalid’… for what reasons… or which parties were the most affected by these disqualified votes????
Quite a serious omission me thinks….

THE ELECTION – “For the Record”
Most of you know I am a researcher when it comes to profiling people and I have a pretty good track record for accuracy and been doing this for 40 years.
Here is my take from the information I have gathered:
When the PM postponed the election in September, the Electoral Commission said the NEXT DATE they can work a re-election date so that all the proper procedures are in place and be in a ready to go state would be 21 November.
Them PM brushed them off and forced a 17 October date. This causes a significant problem as there can be a lot of mishaps with things not in line. This is a covert strategy move to Labours advantage! Dirty politics!
My views on the outcome are…
The PM will knock out the minor parties, potentially fiddle the votes via the early voting ploy as this enables votes to be seen, changed, destroyed and no one would know.
In my expert opinion, the PM is a fabrication and diversion artist. This is obvious by her excessive use of her hands and head movement, a quality most liars follow and no straight answers. The excessive use of the words “obviously, as I say, again” and so forth are subconscious intimidation.
The graphs I have made of all the major MP’s and leaders indicate the PM by years end, enters a downhill slide, as do her partner, Nash, James Shaw, Peters and several others.
Collins is under tension but pulls through, Seymour, is well positioned, but here is where the problem lies (pun intended for the PM), I suspect there is going to be a legal intervention brought forward highlighting interference with votes and the incomplete readiness of the election process due to non adherence to the electoral commission needing another month to be prepared.
This election has the potential to bring about civil unrest as the many new voters and the passion they have to have the standing PM stood down may put her in a precarious position as she has made many citizens dislike her to the extreme.
I would not be surprised if there is a new election called for and in my view, this must happen. Even a blind person can join the dots that this government has not been anything but a ‘car crash’ to the people and the economy of New Zealand and the biggest disappointment ever in the history of New Zealand politics.
In her own words this evening in the final leaders debate were, when asked if she would remain in Labour should she not win the election and a clear and instant “NO”! was uttered. She has probably got a ticket to the corrupt UN in her wallet.
In finishing. I am a Candidate for the UPPER HARBOUR ELECTORATE and stood up because I believe we need NZ to be reclaimed by the people. I have the same policies I had for New Zealand when I ran for Mayor of Auckland last year, but more now because of the difference between local government and central government.
I have become disillusioned with politics due to several leaders of Parties I have come to observe and find little trust exists.
However, Post the election, I will be (and already am working on it) fulfilling my personal policies to bring about the improvement of New Zealand and it’s people with new business models, greater employment opportunities, a drought free Auckland, a pollution free NZ, New Power sources, sustainable energy, sewerage problems solved, electric cars for all that want them at no additional cost to the present incomes, Cooperatives for the indigenous peoples and the cleaning up of the land, new more powerful fertilisers at half the cost to the farmers, clean waterways once again, a New Educational system that caters to ALL people and works – like in the military; “we leave no one behind”, all this and more can be done and the systems have been worked out already. Please vote on Saturday for the party you feel will support you without further harm to your loved ones and your country.
Thank you for reading this write up.

Update 26-10-20 Read : Analysis – ex-National voters opted for Labour as its own handbrake RNZ Tim Watkin.

“…You have to go back to 1938 for a bigger percentage (55.8 percent) and to 1935 for a bigger bunch of new MPs (29)…”

That’s the wildest result in 82 years
Such an extraordinary result ought to face scrutiny just to ensure something is not awry.

“….But many of those voters, having given up on Winston Peters and seeing National without a hope of winning, have opted for Labour as its own handbrake, ensuring the Greens don’t have the power to pull Labour further left. They have built a moat for Labour, separating it from those on its left flank…”

This argument is Pish weak… yet it is the one the media is peddling and what you the voters are supposed to believe about the very weird results rather than asking more piecing questions.

Myself, I wont concede the results are legitimate until some sort of transparent and substantial investigation is carried out by some truly independent person.

Willie the Waiter’s 75th Birthday… Lion Breweries drop the ball.

Update… Read WILLIE THE WAITERS 75TH BIRTHDAY PARTY AT THE RANGIRIRI HOTEL. 31-10-20.
This went a long way to alleviate my concerns expressed in this blogpost (below)
These events could have been much bigger and better had Lion invested more care, and I hope they do so in the future. Waikato Draught is a Cultural Icon to this region.

Dear Lion Breweries… custodians of the Waikato Draught brand and Best beer in New Zealand,
The following is written with the utmost attempt at respect yet unfortunately I must express grave concern with how you have failed to do Willie the Waiter due respect for his 75th birthday.
Where is any of the fanfare and celebrations?
Do you not know how Big a deal this month is for your loyal Waikato customers?
This 75th birthday ought to have been the biggest day in the history of Waikato Draught and yet it appears you have completely failed to do Willie justice!
There ought to have been Big things planned!
The Rock Radio should have been hired to as MCs!
I cannot believe how little you have done.
It’s like you don’t even give a toss for your brand.

Just look at the sad handles you put out this year compared to the Epic handles for Willies 70th! (picture below)…. this years handle is a disgrace.

For Willies 70th you produced special 24 pack stubbies with a free large Willie the Waiter sticker on every Pack!
For his 58th birthday you even made a special strong brew at 5.5%

What have you done for his 75th????
Nothing!!!
It’s pathetic!

Talk about a marketing opportunity completely blown!

Well its not too late to make it right.
You still have a couple of weeks to get something happening.
You can go back to the drawing board and sort out a better designed handle and issue then… even if they come out late… still better than allowing this shameful neglect to pass into history.

I am writing this in the hope that you will wake up and save the day….

Now I just so happened to make it to the Live Countdown and Rock Concert thanks to winning tickets from Carlsberg Beer! (How cool was that!)

They got me and my Bro (The legendary Jamie C) accommodation at the Ramada Suites on Victoria st…Great service from their Staff.
There was an Ice bucket of Carlsberg beersies, Concert Wristbands to get into the Carlsberg VIP Box set up Center rear of the stadium, with great views of the stage and of course… a Bar looking down upon the envious multitude.
All the Eventn staff involved, from the Rock, Fuse promotions, and Carlsberg Beer were wonderful and made us feel very welcome.
The Crowd was having a blast with the countdown, everyone was trying to figure out which song would make it to Number 1.

My Favorite Band Tool’s ‘The Pot’ got piped at post by The Foofighters ‘Everlong’.
Dave Grohl recorded an acceptance speech, thanked his fans and promised a Tour in NZ in the near future (Damn the Rona!)

The Rock celebrated Bryce Casey’s 20 years at the Station, with video tributes from Kiwi Celebs beamed onto the big screen, many of them expressing their respect for Bryce’s Voluntary work in the area of Mental health.


Head like a Hole… From here

Then it was time for the Bands!
Legends Head like a hole opened.
Then ‘Racing’ which I have never herd before, and they had a cool sound.
Villainy was obviously popular with the Younger folk.
By the time Devilskin came on we had abandoned the Carlsberg VIP box and were Front row center stage… Rockin out!
When the show was over, Jamie and I ended up at a bar called ‘Father Teds Original Irish pub on Wellesley st listening to a 2 piece band.
It was sometime after 1am that I got back to the Motel… god knows where Jamie went… but he was there in the morning when I woke up so we survived it!
Many Thanks to Carlsberg for all that!
Fabulous!

My Rock Picks for 2020.(Below)

My Rock 2000 choices… Thrown together at the last moment.
I intended to do a far greater systematic evaluation yet because I had pissed about too much… I ended up winging it….

Below is my Rock catalogue that I was intending to use to pick my Top 20 for the Rock 2000, yet I never got it finished in time.
I will add to this and it will be ready for next years Rock 2000.
Everyone who digs a similar range of sounds as I will be able to use the list to jog their memory.
The idea is not to list *all the songs* any band or artist made, but their best ones… in my humble opinion.

So many great bands and songs still to list… please feel free to tell me some you think need to be here.

A little about my musical taste.
Tool is my favorite band.
Love Classic Rock!, Love Hair Metal!, but the Zenith of Music for me was 90s Grunge.
The 90’s were the greatest party years of my life… I guess everyone has their own ‘Heyday’.
There are no rules written in concrete that we all must agree as to who is the greatest… etc… and everyone has a soundtract to their own life (to plagerise a slogan from another Radio show! :-))

Tool won the Rock’s ‘Rock Wars’ in 2011.
They won the Rock 1000 in 2013 with Sober.
Tool also won the Rock 1000 in 2014 with Stinkfist.
Tool was second last Year in the Rock 1500 with The Pot.

Of course I like some Cruzzie Lazy Sunday tunes too… and some trippy stuff!
Even some 80s pop cheese… never to be herd on the Rock… but what the hell….aaaand even… dare I say it…some pop country!
I’m going to have to kill you to keep my dirty secrets safe! 🙂
Buffalo Girls go around the outside!
Dang!
😀
Word Homie.
I’ll probably have to surrender my Westie membership card after this… I cant help it…. I enjoy a broad spectrum of music!
Though I am not a musician myself, I think life definitely has a soundtrack, and I habitually think of songs to fit situations or conversations… a lot of what will be listed below cannot be called ‘Rockin Beats’… not Party hard music, a lot is trippy… a lot is cruizzie… yet if you have gone to a lot of Gigs… and rages the *real trick is to take the people on a bit of a ride*
I am sure those of you who play in bands know that you set out your song list like a rollercoaster ride… Building up… then going down which is important so that you can take the party back up again!
Its the lows of life that make the Highs High… that’s a free bit of Life Coaching for you younguns… enjoy it all.
Many songs listed below are there simply because I rank them highly… despite not having a single ounce of Rock juice…
They are there because I want them to remain a part of my life till my last breath.
What is interesting about the Rock 2000 is just how broad a range of songs actually make the list!
It is not what might be expected… just a narrow succession of Bogan head banging Anthems… this tells me I am far from alone in my fetish for freaky flavours.

The Rock 2000 is sponsored by Carlsberg Beer!
I am no expert on German Ale, yet am very familiar with the Gold Can Elephant Beer 8%!
Top Beer!
And for that reason Carlsberg is one of the few Foreign Beer brands whose stuff I collect.

I will add references to where each song scored this year if they made the cut.

I have my own Facebook music page (here) where a regularly post new Music video’s that I have just discovered, or Blasts from the past.
Music related articles, jokes, etc.
Music is a massive part of my life.
