Parihaka Pa

South of New Plymouth off Highway 45
Pungarehu, Taranaki
After the Taranaki Wars of the 1860s, Parihaka became a centre of Maori resistance to further loss of their land. Te Whiti and Tohu promoted civil disobedience to achieve this aim. To quell the resistance the Government sacked Parihaka in 1881. Several historic buildings survive on the marae and there is a memorial there to Te Whiti.

In 2010 Parihaka was the scene for an international peace festival.

The events at Parihaka have provided inspiration for a number of New Zealand artists.
