Ngā Pou Kīngi o Hauraki

Here is another text, this time from 1893, which lists the poukīngi of Hauraki:

The Hauraki poukīngi are:

  • Te Aroha, for Ngāti Maru
  • Moehau, for Ngāti Tamaterā
  • Kohukohunui, for Ngāti Whanaunga
  • Rātāroa, for Ngāti Pāoa
Rātāroa is a small peak near Miranda and Waitakaruru.

Kohukohunui is the highest peak in the Hunua Ranges, inland from Waharau, north of Kaiaua. Te Aroha and Moehau are well known.

This list was published in Te Paki-o-Matariki (published by the Kīngitanga) on 25 July 1893. It is part of a larger discussion concerning relationships between the Kīngitanga and various iwi at that time.
