E pā ana te taitara o te niupepa, Nga Hiiringa i te Whitu: The Seals made by Te Whitu, ki ngā hīri, ki ngā whakatau a Te Whitu Huakatoa, Te Heamana o te Kaunihera Tāone o te Kingitanga, kei raro i tēnei karangatanga takiwā ko Waikato, ko Pātetere (whaka te hauāuru o Rotorua) me Piako.

Nā tēnei niupepa i whakaputa kōrero mō te hui tuatahi o te Kaunihera i te tau 1896, me tētahi rārangi o ngā whakatau 18 i whakatatūria. Te āhua nei ko te ētita ko te Hēkeretari o te Kaunihera a T K T Waitangi.

Kotahi anō te putanga kua kitea, (12 Oketopa 1896). Mō ētahi atu mōhiotanga mō te niupepa tirohia P Parkinson rāua ko P Griffith, Books in Maori (Auckland: Reed, 2004), S37, wh. 805.

E hiahia ana te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa ki te mihi ki a Gail Dallimore mōna i tuku kōrero mai i whakamahia i roto i ngā tuhinga roa mō ngā niupepa Māori.

The title of the newspaper, Nga Hiiringa i te Whitu: The Seals made by Te Whitu, refers to the seals or resolutions made by Te Whitu Huakatoa, Chairman of the County Council of the Kingitanga, which included Waikato, Patetere (west of Rotorua) and Piako.

This paper published a report of the first meeting of the Council in 1896, with a list of the 18 resolutions passed. The editor was probably the Secretary of the Council, T K T Waitangi.

Only one issue has been located (12 October 1896).  For further information about the newspaper, see P Parkinson and P Griffith, Books in Maori (Auckland: Reed, 2004), S37, p. 805.

The National Library would like to thank Gail Dallimore for providing information used in essays about Maori newspapers.
