of the Mahuhu Canoe. It came down the coast and put some of its people off at
Kaipara then went back up North to the Awanui District.
Ngati Awa canoe arrives
at Bay of Plenty.
1450 Ngati Awa whose canoe had came in a century earlier
to the Bay of Plenty area came north to Muriwhenua and started fighting with Ngati
1500 Ngati Awa started to move south again being driven a head of
1515 Ngati whatua had already in earlier years exterminated
the original people around Kaitaia. They had moved south taking land from South
Hokianga to Wairau and exterminating all of the original people of the Waipoua
1600 - 1650 Some of the Ngati whatua being the ancestors of Tirarau
and Parore Te Awha moved to Maunganui south mingling (inter-marriage via Toa's
slave wife) with Ngati Rangi.
This is the reason why in later generations
Parore Te Awha had a greater right to Maunganui Bluff
By 1600 A section
of Ngati whatua moved on the Wairoa, Dargaville.
1625 The propagator of
Te Roroa was Ikataora being Toa's father.. Those by the first wife stayed on the
land between Wairau and the Hokianga (being Te Roroa). Those born via Toa's third
wife being from where Parore Te Awha and Tirarau and Taurau descends 5/6 generations
Those via Toa's third slave wife (connected to Parore's ancestors)
some also descend and propagate the Te Uri o hau and those via Taramainuku being
Parore Te Awha's grandfather got the lands of Tutamoe, Maunganui and Kaihu via
Taramainuku's sister who was Ngati Rangi.
Reason being why about 150 years
later (1800's) therefore -
- Te Roroa's home lands were to the Waipoua North
- as likewise the Te Uri o hau to the south of the Wairoa River
south of Dargaville
- and why the lands of Kaihu, Tutamoe and Maunganui belonged
to Parore Te Awha and Tirarau's fore fathers had become closely related to Ngapuhi
and closely related to Eastern Ngapuhi re Hongi Hika (Ngapuhi Proper).
Ngatiwhatua attack Ngapuhi at Puketona, Kaikohe.
1795 Rori (Ngapuhi
of upper Hokianga) attacked the Roroa and pushed them back into the back of the
Waipoua Forest being Wairau. Taoho moved southward without permission onto Parore
Te Awha's father's land being at Waipoua and onto the Kaihu valley at Opanake.
Squabbling took place but Tirarau and Parore's father agreed to leave them there
until his death.
1805 Pokia (Hongi Hika's relation from Eastern Ngapuhi)
came for a friendly visit to see Taoho. Taoho invited them to come and attack
Ngati whatua due to Adultery at Otamatea.
Pokia's son was killed. (Note -
Pokia is also an ancestor of Hone Heka)
1805/6 Pokia came to Kaihu to resume
his sons bones and found out that Taoho had not taken revenge for his son's death.
He then realised he had been tricked so he took home the women and children of
Te Awha's being Parore Te Awha's father's family being those also closely related
to the Ngapuhi proper (as his wife was of Ngapuhi proper) leaving the men on the
ground as Pokia planed to take payment.
1805 Te Kaha and Te Kairau came
and lived at Maunganui Bluff on Te Awha land coming from Punikitere south west
of Kaikohe. They were of western Ngapuhi and they came to protect Te Awha's land
being related to both sides.
Te Roroa were now to become split as Tiopira's
father and follower stayed to the north of Maunganui Bluff while Taoho of Te Roroa
and his followers were now at Opanake, Kaihu being east of Maunganui..
A series of attacks now took place.
Ngapuhi proper attack Taoho's section
of Te Roroa and pushed them south of the Wairoa River below Dargaville to Toka
1807 The battle at Moremonui took place.
Ngati whatua and Roroa
won the fight on the day but Taoho of Te Roroa had to stay in exile for safety
re- the Marking of the Sands as told in the Polynesian Journals. Pokia killed.
Due to the Marking of the Sands Taoho and his section of Te Roroa along with Ngati
whatua remained south associates of this line. Hongi Hika who was at the battle
decided one day he would get revenge for his relation Pokia.
