Te Karere o Poneke

Ko ngā kaiwhakaputa o Te Karere o Poneke (Port Nicholson Messenger, 1857-1858) ko McKenzie rāua ko Muir. I te 1845, nā rāua i whakatū te Wellington Independent (Scholefield, 1958: 28, 153). E ai ki ngā tohu ko Te Karere nei te mātāmua o Te Ao Marama, te niupepa reo Māori o mua o te Wellington Independent, te āhua nei i mutu rawa tōna putanga i te tau 1849.

I whakaputaina Te Karere o Poneke e Te Pura (Walter Buller), i taua wā he kaiwhakamāori ia i te Tari o te Kaiwhakawā ā-Tāone i Te Whanga-nui-a Tara (Parkinson rāua ko Griffith, 2004: 752).  He āhua rite te hōputu me te takoto o tēnei niupepa ki Te Manuhiri Tuarangi and Maori Intelligencer, nā Te Pura hoki i ētita.

Ko te rā whakamutunga i puta ai tēnei niupepa ko te 27 Tīhema, 1858.

Mō ētahi atu mōhiotanga mō te niupepa tirohia P Parkinson rāua ko P Griffith, Books in Maori (Auckland: Reed, 2004), S6, wh. 751–752.

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 publishers of Te Karere o Poneke (Port Nicholson Messenger, 1857-1858) were McKenzie and Muir who, in 1845, set up the Wellington Independent (Scholefield, 1958: 28, 153). It is likely that this Te Karere is the successor to Ko Te Ao Marama, the Wellington Independent's earlier Maori-language newspaper, which appears to have ceased publication in 1849.

Te Karere o Poneke was produced by Walter Buller, at the time an interpreter in the Resident Magistrate’s Office in Wellington (Parkinson and Griffith, 2004: 752). This newspaper is similar in format and style to Te Manuhiri Tuarangi and Maori Intelligencer, which was also edited by Buller.

The last issue appears to have been published on 27 December, 1858.

For further information about the newspaper, see P Parkinson and P Griffith, Books in Maori (Auckland: Reed, 2004), S6, pp. 751–752.
