Rangi Miria

Ngati Pehe (Tribe) Rangi Miria was born in Te Kuiti and given for adoption at birth by her parents to help another Maori family regroup. With her went Mana(respect and status) and land. This worked well until all the parents had passed away. Then the daughters, born into the new family decided to take possession of the land and titles and swept her under the carpet.All that remained after her death in 1930 was a damaged photo, her loving children and her Taonga (Cloak and pendants). In 1997 Peter was asked to paint Rangi Miria by her Grand daughter to help restore her Mana. This has since worked and the 2 families have come together and compensation made and Rangi Miria picture now hangs in her meeting house with honour where it belongs. A single feather represents a silent protest, just a reminder but without bitterness.
