Maungakawa Settlement
(From The News and Theatre Courier' 12 August 1936)

'In the eighteen sixties the Maungakawa Maori Settlement was one of the largest of its kind in the Waikato having a population of several hundred Maori. It possessed a large Wharepuna (meeting house) and [later] a Maori Parliament House, where meetings of the various tribes under King Tawhiao took place.'
