    105116ORIGIN OF THE WAIKATO RIVER as told by Wini Kerei Te lYhetuiti to John St. Clair. As I wrote &quot;Te-hoe-o-Tainui&quot; in the proper column, it occurred to me to ask my old friend the origin of the name. I could see that it meant &quot;The Paddle of the Canoe '.2ainui&quot; but was anxious to hear the story, especially as I knew he was a great authority on ancient Yaori lore and wisdom. &quot;You are right&quot; replied he, &quot;-it does mean the paddle of Tainui, but it is more, it is the steer oar of the canoe&quot;. Near to wheRe this whare and pa stand is the &quot;Talmna Tapu&quot; which divides the aters of Waikato from those of Piako, but the waters were not always divided thds. Alen my ancestors first caw, to this land, it was a huge lake, whose waters spread far and wide, from the Au-o-Waikato to Pirongia and on to 'aupiri; it is said the the canoe Tainui came to the foot of Pirongia Mountain. The canoe had comre up the nauraki Gulf to this place, were she stuck on the Tahuna Tapu (sacred bank). In getting her off the steer oar 'as lost, and lies buried in the mud close by, hence the sandbank is sacred. Only those who are wise know how to use the paddle and fools only injure themselves with it. Hence it is best that it shodid be tapu. When the canoe came here she was on her nay to Patea in accordance with the directions of Pure, who had told her crew to go to the river on the 'pest Coast of Aotearoa, which ran parallel with the coast, on the banks of ,hich was a very sacred site of an ancient temple known to Kupe. In previous lives before the greater Hawaiiki sank beneath the waves, Kupe had re-visited this temple prior to Ture's sending out the canoes and had desired Ture to send out some people to re-populate the land and restore the fire on that ancient shrine at Pates. The canoe rent on from ere she lost her Steer oariK to the foot of Plrongia, which was at that period a very high mountain of similar share to Taranaki but much larger and loftier. The crew found the passage blocked by a range of hills so returned and made their way round to the Naitemata and through by Manakau. Some years after-this when the children of the migrations had increased and spread over the land, a great eruption of Pirongia took place, ti,e land shook, the thunder roared, all was confusion, then the whose of the mountain blew up in the clouds, and fell the form of rain and mud and sand. The shallow lake was filled up, and the eaters of it were displaced, and the waters flowed, hence the name &quot;Waikato&quot;- the waters that flowed, or rather which were displaced and fell away, for &quot;katon in olden days meant also to flow down or fall rapidly.

    167189BERNARD FERGUSSON SCHOOL  Box 25 Dyke SP.&quot;  Telephone 8059 NGARUAWAHIA    28. 4. 73.  Dear Dr. Jones, TE HOE 0 TAINUI. In the lost two years, I have been colecting the legends and history of Tainui to pass on to my pupils and to the Guides who take visitors around Turangawaewae. The story of Te Hoe o Tainui had eluded me; I could not find a reference to it, even in &quot;Tainui: I was told on +he marae, that Hoturoa threw the paddle from Tainui, to claim the land. Even if the canoe had paddled up the Piako, the throw must have been no less than 5 miles, and if Hoturoa had thrown it from the vessel moored off-shore he created a world record of about 20 miles: Such is the stuff of myths and legends: and this one story seems foreign  to the otherwise logical and factually-based accounts of Tainui's journey. I was therefore delighted to find the explanation as told by Wini Kerei Te Whetuiti, chief of Ngati Paoa of Hoe-o-Tainui, when searching  the shelves of the Auckland Museum. As you are the authority on Tainui, I should like to have your comments - I suggest at the Coronation Hui to save taking time ove letter. Slair's account is enclosed for your relaxed reading. YcNr, sincerely, Radley /.
