A historical review to identify and analyse Pootatau Te Wherowhero’s interests in Taamaki Makauraru, mainly the North Maioro block, South Maioro block, the East Wairoa block and Manukau Harbour. The review included a general account of Pootatau Te Wherowhero’s interests before 1810, being before the Ngaa Puhi attack on Maatakitaki Paa; and a detailed account of his interests after 1810. Interviews with key Tribal members helped to support and form this review of historical interests.
