Te Teira was the chief of the Puke-Kowhatu branch of the Te Atiawa tribe. Teira and his people sold to the Crown the block of land at Waitara. This sale was opposed by Wiremu Kingi and his party resulting in the outbreak of war at Waitara in 1860-1861 and martial law was imposed in the area as Crown surveyors were forced off the land and sent back to New Plymouth.
