4&lt;h2&gt;The Barbers Cave&lt;/h2&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;It was not the Maori women of long ago who had the most elaborate coiffures, but the men. This is proved by the collection of tools and other accessories used to trim topknots of the chiefs on &lt;span style=&amp;quot;letter-spacing: 0.35pt&amp;quot;&gt;the Poor Knights. The tools were found by Mr William Fraser in a cave on these islands, &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;letter-spacing: 0.45pt&amp;quot;&gt;probably in the early 1920's. William Frazer was&lt;em&gt; Whangarei &lt;/em&gt;Harbour Board Engineer 1920-48 &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;and an&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;authority on Maori artifacts.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 3.6pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 3.6pt 6pt 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: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; letter-spacing: 0.4pt&amp;quot;&gt;This unusual collection of tools consisted of a wooden pillow made of&lt;em&gt; totara, &lt;/em&gt;a chopping block&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;and a piece of sharp obsidian to do the actual cutting. On a ledge in the cave were nine &lt;span style=&amp;quot;letter-spacing: 0.3pt&amp;quot;&gt;topknots laid out side by side, all in perfect condition. Some of these were light red, while &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;letter-spacing: 0.4pt&amp;quot;&gt;others, darker in colour, were touched up with red&lt;em&gt; kokowai &lt;/em&gt;dye. Each was tied so as to form&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;letter-spacing: 0.5pt&amp;quot;&gt;what is known today as a &amp;quot;switch&amp;quot;. This cave must have been the chief&lt;em&gt; Tatua's &lt;/em&gt;beauty parlour.&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 3.6pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt; &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 3.6pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 3.6pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;Some years after the &amp;quot;Barbers' Shop&amp;quot; was discovered on the Poor Knights, Mr Charlie Devonshire found the body of a child in an almost inaccessible cave. This child was wrapped in a cloak, and laid on its side on a folded flax mat.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;  &lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 3.6pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;The side of the face exposed to the air had deteriorated, and dry maggot cases were plainly visible. The cloak, too, had suffered, but nevertheless, that part directly on top of the folded flax &lt;span&gt;mat&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;was intact and showed a&lt;em&gt; taniko &lt;/em&gt;pattern&lt;em&gt;.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;  &lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 7.2pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;When the child was turned over, its skin and hair on the protected side was seen to be in good &lt;span style=&amp;quot;letter-spacing: 0.4pt&amp;quot;&gt;condition. Also on the rocky ledge were some &lt;em&gt;paua &lt;/em&gt;shells filled with&lt;em&gt; kokowai &lt;/em&gt;dye - probably in preparation for the&lt;em&gt; hahunga &lt;/em&gt;ceremony, which of course, never took place because of the&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;&lt;/span&gt;massacre on the islands in 1823.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p style=&amp;quot;margin: 6pt 7.2pt 6pt 0cm&amp;quot; class=&amp;quot;MsoNormal&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&amp;quot;font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;font color=&amp;quot;#000000&amp;quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Reference: Florence Keene, &lt;em&gt;Tai Tokerau&lt;/em&gt;, Northland Room, Whangarei Library&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
