This map shows the routes taken by Te Āti Awa and their allies during two major migrations of the 1820s, prompted by pressure in the north from aggressive Waikato tribes. In the Tātaramoa migration of about 1822, Te Āti Awa were accompanied by people of Ngāti Toa, Ngāti Mutunga and Ngāti Tama. The last two tribes also joined them on the Nihoputa migration of about 1824. Both journeys were difficult and dangerous, passing through or near the territories of many other tribes (marked in red on the map).
