Kikia Te Poa


John Cook - a 'Maorish' (Ngapuhi/Irish) Maori who ventures into the Anglo-South African War to prove himself and the value of his people to a changing New Zealand.

Although Maori were not allowed to fight in the Boer War, many mixed blood men did and one of them was John Walter Callaway, who wrote a haka for the Kiwi troops - Kikia Te Poa.
