Rāhiri is the founding ancestor of Ngāpuhi. Hokianga traditions say that Rāhiri’s first wife, Āhuaiti, came from this large pā, Pouērua, near Kaikohe, and that she left after a dispute. However, the traditions of her people say that the two were married at Pouērua and that Rāhiri was the one who left.
