Ina i whakakuhuna Te Upokorehe e Nāhinara i te whakataunga tiriti o Tuhoe i te tau rua mano ngahuru ma wha. Engari no muri mai i whakatau kētia e te kāwanatanga he hapu kē Te Upokorehe o Te Whakatōhea. Otira te purongo a te roopu Whakamana i Te Tiriti o Waitangi, no tata ake mo te whakataunga tiriti o Te Whakatōhea he taringa rua kē nāa roopu whakataunga tiriti ki te tuakiritanga o Te Upokorehe he iwi ke tonu rātou ēhara kau i te hapu. Ki te kōrero a tētahi o ngā kaumātua o Te Upokorehe a Trevor Ransfield mā runga i tō rātou iwitanga kei te hiahia Te Upokorehe ki te tuhia ōna ake kōrero o nehera hei ngā rahaunga o Aotearoa ēkene mā te kāwanatanga o Reipa e whakamana ai i to rātou ake mana motuhaketanga kia whai tonu rātou i o rātou Upokorehetanga. Heoi ano ka riro ma Te Whakatohea me ōna hapu e tikatika ana i te roopu hei mangai whakataunga tiriti mo rātou ake a kō ake rano.
