Ko Te Tuhiwai, te mere a Te Rangihaeata

Ko Te Rangihaeata te kaingārahu toa a Te Rauparaha, rangatira o Ngāti Toa. Kei konei e mau ana i tōna mere a Te Tuhiwai. I tāia tēnei whakaahua i te takiwā o te tau 1850. Nā Te Rauparaha tēnei mere i tuku ki a Te Rangihaeata, ka mutu, i riro i a ia i te whakatūnga o te maungārongo i a rāua ko te rangatira o Ngāi Tahu i a Te Matenga Taiaroa. Ko tā Te Rauparaha koha mō te rākau kāmehameha nei ko te waka e karangatia ana ko Wai-ka-hua.
