A Map of Iwi Areas in Hauraki

Here is a map taken from the Journal of the Polynesian Society, that shows some interesting names and locations. Unfortunately, there are few errors - the area about present day Thames township is Ngāti Maru territory. The area immediately to the north and along the coast is a takiwā of Ngāti Tamaterā (Waikawau block). The area of land labelled 'Ngāti Tamaterā' is part of the Ngāti Pāoa rohe adjoining Ngāti Maru adjacent to the Waihou River.
