This map shows the coastal explorations and landing places of the Tainui canoe. They define the coastal boundaries of the area that was traditionally settled by descendants of the Tainui voyagers, including Ngāti Toarangatira. The area is described by Ngāti Toa as being bounded at the top (actually in the south) by Mōkau, and at the bottom (actually the north) by Tāmaki – hence this map appears to be ‘upside down’.
