The Ancient History of the Maori, His Mythology and Traditions: Horo-Uta or Taki-Tumu Migration. [Vol. II]


page break


At page 84 of the Maori part of the present volume I ‘have taken advantage of the able work, “Nga Tupuna Maori,” published by Sir George Grey, K.C.B., and have quoted the passages there to be found relative to Maui, Ira-waru, and Nga-hue. To the Rev. J. W. Stack—from his writings contained in the “Proceedings of the New Zealand. Institute”—I owe the passages relating to Rua-pupuke and Hine-matiko-tai found on page 162 of the English part. And the passages respecting Hou-mea and Tau-tini-awhitia, on pages 167 and 173 of the English part, I owe to the valuable writings of W. Colenso, Esq., F.L.S., contained in the “Proceedings of the New Zealand Institute.”
