Tangaroa &lt;/em&gt;had filled the sea &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.25pt&amp;quot;&gt;with fish and shellfish with a lavish hand. &lt;em&gt;Tane's &lt;/em&gt;forests were full of good timber while feeding &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;in the treetops were fat &lt;em&gt;kukupa &lt;/em&gt;and &lt;em&gt;tui. &lt;/em&gt;It was indeed a land of plenty.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.3pt&amp;quot;&gt;When &lt;em&gt;Tahuhu, &lt;/em&gt;who came to &lt;em&gt;Aotearoa &lt;/em&gt;in the canoe &lt;em&gt;Moekakaroa, &lt;/em&gt;arrived in about the year 1350 he was immediately drawn to this place, and said to his men, &lt;em&gt;&amp;quot;Tena le koha O Tangaroa me &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;Tane, hoki&amp;quot; - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;behold the gifts of &lt;em&gt;Tangaroa &lt;/em&gt;and &lt;em&gt;Tane.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.4pt&amp;quot;&gt;He and his people landed just south of Bream Bay at a place he called Te &lt;em&gt;Arai &lt;/em&gt;because he built &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.35pt&amp;quot;&gt;a temporary shelter there. To safeguard his people against the &lt;em&gt;makutu &lt;/em&gt;of the &lt;em&gt;tangata whenua, &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.9pt&amp;quot;&gt;Tahuhu &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.9pt&amp;quot;&gt;also set up a &lt;em&gt;tuahu, &lt;/em&gt;which was a stone altar that stood a few feet high in a &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;perpendicular position.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.3pt&amp;quot;&gt;Most tribes had a &lt;em&gt;tuahu &lt;/em&gt;at which many rites were carried out by their &lt;em&gt;tohunga - &lt;/em&gt;ceremonies for &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.25pt&amp;quot;&gt;christening, for childbirth, planting and harvesting of &lt;em&gt;kumara, &lt;/em&gt;special fishing expeditions. In fact, &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;for anything of importance to the tribe.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.25pt&amp;quot;&gt;After living at &lt;em&gt;Te Arai &lt;/em&gt;for some years &lt;em&gt;Tahuhu &lt;/em&gt;was filled with a desire to explore the country &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.4pt&amp;quot;&gt;further south so he called his people together and said, &amp;quot;Listen, 0 my people, a great desire to visit the lands further south fills my every thought and makes me as restless as a fantail. Day &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.35pt&amp;quot;&gt;and night I am consumed with a curiosity to know about the lands further south. Come, let us &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;make preparations for the journey.&amp;quot;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.35pt&amp;quot;&gt;So &lt;em&gt;Tahuhu &lt;/em&gt;and his tribe journeyed to the Auckland isthmus until they found a spot that pleased him so much that he decided to live there. He set his men to work to build a &lt;em&gt;kainga &lt;/em&gt;where he &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.3pt&amp;quot;&gt;and his people could live. He called the place after himself, &lt;em&gt;0-tahuhu &lt;/em&gt;as it is known to this day. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;Many of his tribe married into the &lt;em&gt;Wai-ohua, &lt;/em&gt;the local people and lived there in prosperity.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.35pt&amp;quot;&gt;As the tribe expanded, they laid claim to more land, and then inevitably there were quarrels with the neighbouring peoples of west &lt;em&gt;Tamaki. &lt;/em&gt;This made the &lt;em&gt;Ngati Tahuhu &lt;/em&gt;unpopular and it is said &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.45pt&amp;quot;&gt;that &lt;em&gt;Tahuhu &lt;/em&gt;died because a curse was put on him by an enemy &lt;em&gt;tohunga. &lt;/em&gt;On his death some of &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;his people took his body back to be buried at &lt;em&gt;Te Arai, &lt;/em&gt;his original home in &lt;em&gt;Aotearoa.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt; &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 10.8pt 7.2pt 0pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.65pt&amp;quot;&gt;Some of the &lt;em&gt;Ngati Tahuhu &lt;/em&gt;stayed behind at &lt;em&gt;Otahuhu &lt;/em&gt;but those who came north with their &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.4pt&amp;quot;&gt;chiefs body rebuilt their kainga at Te &lt;em&gt;Arai. &lt;/em&gt;Gradually some members of the tribe spread from &lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.3pt&amp;quot;&gt;Te Arai &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.3pt&amp;quot;&gt;to the shores of the &lt;em&gt;Whangarei &lt;/em&gt;Harbour while others went as far inland as &lt;em&gt;Mangakahia &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;Valley.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 10.8pt 7.2pt 0pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;Referenced from Florence Keene's &lt;em&gt;Tai Tokerau&lt;/em&gt;, Northland Room, Whangarei Library&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</Content>
