Tapihana Brothers in Arms

Author(s): Russell Caldwell

Māori Military History

Areas of Interest: Tapsell family, Maketu, Rotorua, Te Arawa, Ngati Whakaue and New Zealand Wars. It is the story of Retireti, Perepe, and Ieni Tapsell of Maketu. The brothers belonged to Ngati Whakaue of Te Arawa. They were soldiers, government officials and tribal leaders during the nineteenth century. The publication was produced for a recent reunion of the Tapsell family at Maketu in the Bay of Plenty. "...a much more detailed background to those three illustrious brothers than has previously been available. The whole Tapsell family have played a very significant role in the affairs of Te Arawa -in our history-and certainly added an extra element of pleasure to my life." DM Stafford
