Takapūneke

Ko te ranaki mate tētahi take mō ngā riri i waenganui i a Ngāi Tahu rāua ko Ngāti Toa. I ngā tau tōmuri o te tekau tau atu i 1820, ka patua e Ngāi Tahu ētahi rangatira o Ngāti Toa ki te pā o Kaiapoi. I te tau 1830, ka whakakīkīa e Te Rauparaha tētahi kāpene nō Ingarangi kia kawe a ia me ana toa ki Takapūneke i te whanga o Hakaroa. Nā te māminga, ka mau a Te Maiharanui (Tama-i-hara-nui), rangatira nui o Ngāi Tahu. Ka kahakina a Te Maiharanui ki Kapiti, ki reira whakamamaetia kinotia, mate rawa.
