Last week we brought you the story of Whairiri Te Rewa, a 22 year old man who murdered his stepbrother Pomare Mason last December.

We also revealed that his mother and uncle were both convicted of murder in the late 1980s - 1990s.

Tuhoe kaumatua Tama Nikora had this to say about the story.

Kia ora Shane,

E hoa, ehara te mate nei i a Whairiri TeRewa  he take hou
Ina hoki
Na Tuhoe tonu i patu i kai matamata te manawa o tona tuakana a Ueimua
Koia te whenua i te ra nei a TeAhimanawa
e whakana tonu nei ki te ao

Na te po na whakamarama ki a Whairiri
i ona haere i te ngahere
i rongo ai ia i  nga kino o te muru whenua
I turia mai ai te riri e tona marae a Omuriwaka.
Aha, me he tete waka

Na ;  kei te mahi kino tonu
kei te paraurehe te Kawana
i tona kaikaa ki te whakaiti i tana raupatu
Kei te korero nui nga matauranga o te  Manuao, kei te hee tera mahi
Ehara i te moni te mea nui
Ko te ahua tonu o matau mate
Kia tuia te korero kia moe mai ai ratau i te po
Kia mutu ai to ratau haere tonu me te hunga ora

He iwi whakapono a Tuhoe
E inoi tonu nei ki a Ihowa o na mano
i tohu ai i a Ewa ki te whakaputa i a Hatana ki te ao
i tohu ai i a Rawiri ki te kohuru
Nana te kupu, a koia tonu te kupu i te timatanga

He whenua te take a Whairiri
Ko te whare ko TeTatua o Hape
Ko te hapu ko Ngai-Tama-tuhi-rae
Ko TeWhai-o-te-motu ki uta
Kei te koino tonu tona marae a Omuriwaka
Ko Tauranga te awa
Ina te tino whakatupato - A muri tai, te tai

E tama Shane, korerotia te korero
Kia rewa ki runga
Kia mohio te iwi me te Kawana
he aha he korero  ma tatau

Naku iti noa
Tama Nikora
