Summary: Wiremu Tamihana Tarapipipi Te Waharoa( - 1866), generally known as Wiremu Tamihana, was a leader of the Ngati Haua Maori iwi in nineteenth century New Zealand, and is sometimes known as 'the kingmaker' for his role in the Maori King Movement. After his father died in 1838, he became a leader of Ngati Haua even though he was not his father's eldest son. In the late 1850s Tamihana was involved in the establishment of the Maori King Movement, which aimed to unify Maori by setting up a kingship. He was able to persuade several iwi to join the movement, and Potatau Te Wherowhero of Ngati Mahuta to take on the role of first King. Tamihana provided a statement of laws, based on the Bible. Although the movement was seen by many Pakeha as rebellion, it was intended that the Maori King would be in alliance with Queen Victoria. Tamihana became a diplomat and publicist for the movement, founding a Maori language newspaper for it.
