'te Heke-Paukena' Migration
'te Heke-Paukena' Migration.
"It was some time after our settlement at Wai-kanae that the next heke, called by some 'Te heke paukena,' arrived from Puke-tapu, Taranaki" (Rangi-pito says three years, but this cannot be right—it was probably in 1833-4—and with it went Wiremu Te Rangi-tāke and all his people, some of the Taranaki tribes, and a large number of the Ngati-Rua-nui tribe). "Te Ura was the principal chief; it was the last of the many migrations from the northern parts of the Taranaki coast"—says Rangi-pito.
