AFTER ABEL CAME TO AOTEAROA 

A COCK, I MEAN C@%T , SORRY JAMES COOK ARRIVED, AND.....WELL.... WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT .

COOK  IN TRUE COLONISING FASHION HE PUT HIS OWN 2 CENTS IN TERMS OF NAMING CERTAIN PLACES IN AOTEAROA - TE MOANA O RAUKAWA WAS ONE OF THEM "TO LONG MAYBE"" SO HE "NAMED" IT COOK STRAIGHT ALONG WITH A FEW MORE PLACES THAT MAORI ALREADY HAD NAMES FOR. 

IT WAS IN THE NAME OF THE CROWN SO ITS SWEET AYE .........? 

ITS A PROUD NEW ZEALAND HISTORY RIGHT?  ------- WRONG !

JUST REMEMBER - THE CR "OWN"  NOTHING  -  COOK OWNED NOTHING THEY DID WHAT THE CROWN HAD DONE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS  /  THEY TOOK IT 

HOBSON PLEDGE AND PEOPLE OF THAT KINDA BARK NEED TO REMEMBER THAT THERE WAS A HISTORY LONG BEFORE THE COLONISER ARRIVED - A RICH HISTORY WITH ITS OWN STORY AND THOUGHT (WHAKAARO MAORI) BEHIND HOW MAORI NAMED PLACES.

JUST BECAUSE IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ON A PIECE OF PAPER WITH A PRETTY PEN OR FOUNDED ON A CERTAIN YEAR, DOES NOT MAKE IT ANY LESS IMPORTANT. 

THIS IS WHY AOTEAROA AND ALL MAORI PLACE NAMES IN AOTEAROA SHOULD BE RESTORED TO ITS ORIGINAL INGOA  - THE MAORI WORLD VIEW IS HARD TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND BUT ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND.
