He nui ngā kōrero mō te wāhi ngāwhāriki e mōhiotia nei ko Kuirau i nōhia ai e ngā tūpuna o Ngāti Whakaue.  Ko Taokahu te ingoa o te roto mahana i te pūtahi o te tiriti o Ranolf me te rori o Lake, ka mutu, i mua he roto makariri kē.
 
He whare taupua te tupuna mana nui, tō Tūnohopū i reira i a ia e kaukau ana i te roto rā.  I tere hau te rongo o Taokahu hei kaumanga mō ngā rangatira me ō rātau whānau.
 
He mokopuna a Tūtea nā Tūmahaurangi.  Nā Tūtea ko Tamahika, ā, ko ia hoki tētehi rangatira o te wāhi rā.  Ka moe a Tamahika i tana wahine ātaahua, i a Kuiarau. Heoi anō, i a Kuiarau e kaukau ana i Taokahu, ka mau ia i tētehi taniwha i te wai, ka heke hōhonu, ā, ka mate.  Nā reira i tū ai ngā pihi o ngā atua, nō reira, ka koropupū i a rātau te roto kia mate hoki te taniwha rā. I muri mai ka tapaina te wāhi rā ki a Kuirau.

Qualities: innovation, diligence, wellbeing
