This topic of the sixth episode of this Māori/Pākehā satire is 'war'. Irish Colonel North (played by veteran actor Ian Mune) and his British Army soldiers arrive, on their way north to fight Hōne Heke — provoking chief Te Tutu (Pio Terei) and Ngāti Pati into action. Te Tutu’s warmongering with the settlers includes mooning, flagpole-felling and insulting Mr Vole's long-suffering wife (Emma Lange). When the signals aren’t picked up, a stolen rooster gets things moving. A fierce haka is answered by a traditional English song: 'Old Macdonald had a farm'.
Every time we go to war, your grandmother dies: how many have you lost now? 12?– Hine Toa (Rachel House) to Tu Meke (William Davis), as he tries to dodge conscription
Vocals by Pio Terei, Hinewehi Mohi and Aroha Shortland
