New Zealand facts & history in brief               New Zealand Map

Te Kuiti

is a service town and commercial centre of the surrounding hill-country sheep and cattle farming area, with population of about 5000 in Waitomo district.
The township became a borough in 1910.
The Maori people were wanting their own king and after their defeat in the 1860's, they and Te Kooti retreated there and they lived under the protection of the Maori king until the 1880's, when European settlement began to continue the construction of the North Island Main Trunk railway.
In 1890 there was a Maori uprising and some of the European buildings were burnt down.
In the late 1950's, the 60's and 70's when I was travelling around here most of the 'pubs' or bars were segregated, I couldn't get served in a 'Maori bar' and they couldn't drink in the European only bars.
