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.
