The Taiaha remained in the possession of the Wallis Family until this presentation when the Taiaha was given back as a token of remembrance to Chief Te Awaitaia and in appreciation of his services in protecting the infant town and European settlement of Raglan from the ravages of the Waikato Wars of the 1860's.
