Hōri Ngātai New Zealand Wars memorial (1920)

This memorial, erected by Tauranga Māori and the government, was unveiled at the Mission Cemetery in August 1920. The top of the granite column is surmounted by a draped urn. Ngātai took part in the battles at Gate Pā and Te Ranga and died aged 80 on 20 August 1912. His account of the battles was published posthumously, in Mair’s book The Story of Gate Pā, April 29th, 1864 (1926).
