In 1859 Julius von Haast completed a sketch of the defences of Tukiata Pā during the Ohuki Land Dispute. A woodcut of this sketch later appeared in Hochstetter's New Zealand. It shows a terrace, cannon, flagstaff, casemates, ramparts, trenches, a double row of palisades and a passage. Image: Hochstetter, Ferdinand von (1867).
