How did Tautoro School get started?

In 1900 Iraia Kuao was the Rangatira his people in Tautoro.

He got arrested with his people because he was angry with the government for wanting his land divided up. He went to fight the government so they arrested him.

When Iraia got out of jail he said, “I don’t want my children to be in darkness.”

So Iraia Kuao started the idea off to build a new school so his people wouldn’t have to live in a world of darkness.
