About Hori Haupapa

But to return to our Maori, whose name we found out is *Hori Haupapa – he is a fine old fellow, some 86 years old. He fought on the English side in the war and was wounded in three places. On being questioned about it, he seized hold of a tomahawk that was on the table, made one or two chops in the air, then at his leg and then made a sign of eating. His eyes gleamed again and his face looked quite savage. These signs were explained to mean that he killed the man who wounded him, cut one of his legs off and then ate it. The warrior then hinted that he would like some beer. They (the Maoris) are very fond of two things at any rate – drink and money. They will drink like a fish at anybody else's expense. I heard that the old fellow had a pension of £20 a year from the New Zealand government.
