  • Description

    Matuhi (or the Wairarapa Matuhi Press) was a weekly MΓori-language newspaper which began publication in Masterton on 2 September 1903.

    TaiΓwhio Te Tau, a prominent figure in the Church of the Seven Rules of Jehovah and the Rongokako MΓori Council, was closely involved with the newspaper. The activities of both the Church and the Rongokako Council were given extensive coverage in Matuhi, although local, national and international news were also covered.

    Matuhi was edited by TaiΓwhio's wife, Pani, until Wainohu Te Huki took over the role in July 1905.

    Financial difficulties resulted in the demise of Matuhi, with the last issue appearing on 16 April 1906.--Papers Past website.
