Pah Whakataka ….. “To Be Prepared” This was the site of an old Maori encampment, abandoned and with a “rahui” against the gathering of food, and of occupation. Later sealers camped here, which enraged the local Maori, who attached and killed a boy left in charge of the camp.
Maori Beach …… Presumably remembering an earlier Maori occupation
Looking west into the lagoon, and the site of the old Maori Village
