The New Zealand Armed Constabulary was formed in 1867 and with the Native Constabulary became the fore runner of today's New Zealand Police Force and New Zealand Army. Two of the nine divisions were Maori, the 8th and the 9th. The 8th Division was mostly Arawa but there were also Ngapuhi and Ngati Porou members. Some of the 8th Division later became members of the Arawa Flying Column who were formed to capture Te Kooti.
