J H Mitchell

Pub 1973 Hard Cover 272 pages Black and White Plates, folding Genealogical tables,

'Several centuries ago the sacred canoe Takitimu carried the ancestors of the Ngati Kahunugunu on their great migration from the Pacific homeland, Hawaiki, to Aotearoa. The tribes history from the migration period to the twentieth century was published for the first time in 1944. Now in this facsimile edition (with a further preface added) is made available once more. the main object of the work is to preserve the history for the benefit of future generations. The story is in four main parts: the discovery and peopling of the land by the Maori, leading to the departure of the Takitimu canoe and the other canoes of the great migration of some six centuries ago, with a record of their landfalls; settlement of the Ngati Kahungunu tribe; the history of certain leaders of the Wairoa people in more recent times, and the facts concerning the building of the Takitimu House; appendixes relating to important charms, proverbial sayings, interpretation of dreams and signs, and the almanac, which were in common use by the people'
