You could always combine celebrating Parihaka and Bonfire Night (as we always called it in the North of England) very successfully. The whole point is not to celebrate Guy Fawkes, but to burn him in effigy. This point hasn't always been stressed in recent years because it traditionally involved a lot of anti-Catholic feeling.

However, it's long been traditional to burn effigies of unpopular people on the 5th of November, eg Maggie Thatcher, so having a bonfire and burning an effigy of John Bryce would be a nod to the old country and a way of remembering how the people were treated at Parihaka.
