Description:

Apihai Te Kawau was born towards the end of the eighteenth century. His father was Tarahawaiki and his mother was Mokorua, who was descended from the Waiohua people. Te Kawau’s grandfather was Tupe-riri, principal leader of Te Taou hapu of Ngati Whatua who overran the Auckland isthmus around 1740, defeating the Waiohua who became the Nga Oho and Te Uringutu hapu of Ngati Whatua. Thus Te Kawau, the inheritor of several chiefly lines of Ngati Whatua and known as ‘the man of many cousins’, had connections which enabled him to become a unifying and leading person in Ngati Whatua on the Tamaki isthmus.
