NFU Film Information Sheet No. 405 Cat. Refs. 1973 p.47; 1977 p.42; 1984-85 p.28; 1986-87 p.37. Colour 18 mins. 35mm 1,668 ft. In the early nineteenth century the Maori chief Te Rauparaha held fearful sway over a great part of New Zealand. During his life European influences eroded Maori traditions, and much blood was spilled before British colonial law forced Te Rauparahas abdication. His death represents the end of Old New Zealand; this film conveys the magic and the violence that went to make up that past age. THIS OUR COLLEGE (KINGS COLLEGE AUCKLAND)
