Mt Kakepuku

Mt Kakepuku became part of Ngāti Maniapoto’s traditional lands after a series of battles with neighbouring iwi. It is in the northern part of the tribe’s territory, which centres on Te Kūiti. This depiction of the mountain was drawn by Joseph Jenner Merrett some time between 1841 and 1843.
