Sovereignty: Ariki vs. Mataiapo Tutara
An examination of the Ui Ariki's "traditional" claim to sovereignty by comparison with the Mataiapo's role in ancient Rarotongan polity.
This page is dedicated to sharing preserved evidence which sharply contradicts the accepted narrative concerning Rarotongan history and native custom.
Through this, it is hoped the people of Rarotonga and the wider Cook Island's community can reclaim their unique, and true identity, and restore Sovereignty to Enua, Taonga, and Ngati.
