Abstract

The name Muriwhenua was recorded in 1793, possibly for the first time by Tuki Tahua, after he was kidnapped and taken to Norfolk Island. The Maori spiritual pathway ends in Muriwhenua at Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga). The tribes of Muriwhenua see themselves as guardians of this pathway, where all departed souls of Maori must travel to reach their spiritual homeland.
