Ngāti Raukawa in Rangitīkei, Manawatū, Horowhenua and Kāpiti

Some Ngāti Raukawa migrated to Horowhenua in the early 1820s. They settled between the Rangitīkei River and the Kukutauaki Stream. This district is referred to as ‘Mai i Waitapu ki Rangataua mai i Mīria-te-kakara ki Kukutauaki’ – meaning, ‘from Waitapu to Rangataua [two streams flowing into the Rangitīkei River], and from Mīria-te-kakara [a location in the Rangitīkei River] to Kukutauaki’.
