The New Zealand Founders Society
is concerned about the name change
of Tinakori Hill (sometimes known
as Mt Wakefield) to Te Ahumairangi
Hill under the settlement of a Wai-
tangi treaty claim.
Under the Settlement Act, which
settles the historical claims of Tara-
naki Whanui ki Te Upoko o Te Ika's
claim in Wellington, eight place
names have been changed.
The Wakefield name is significant
in Wellington history because three
Wakefield brothers played an
important role in the founding of the
city in the 1830s and 1840s.
The name Tinakori is derived from
the Maori words tina kore, which
means no dinner road'' -- when the
workers made the road they had to
work through dinner.
The society said although it was
important to acknowledge the rights
of the tangata whenua, Captain Wil-
liam Wakefield's leadership contri-
buted greatly to allowing Wellington
Maori land to be protected.
Without him, the society said, the
relatively peaceful co-existence in
the area between Maori and
Europeans would not have been
The society is requesting that the
Wakefield name be restored to the
However, New Zealand Geo-
graphic Board secretary Wendy
Shaw said Mt Wakefield was not a
name that was brought to the board's
attention during the name change
The formal name alteration from
Tinakori Hill to Te Ahumairangi Hill
was made through negotiations of a
Treaty of Waitangi settlement
between the Crown and claimants,''
It was formalised by the Port
Nicholson Block Claims Settlement
Early mapping has consistently
shown the hill with two trigs located
on it -- Upper Witako and Tinakori --
but no name depicted for the whole
She said Tinakori Hill was
acknowledged by the board as being
the most commonly used name. It
was derived from the road name and
therefore bore no significance for the
The alteration of the hill name to
Te Ahumairangi Hill was a matter of
significant cultural importance to
the Taranaki Whanui claimants, and
this was supported by the board at
its April 2008 meeting.''
Ms Shaw said no information was
provided by the claimants about the
original significance and historical
meaning behind the Ahumairangi
name. However, she said the board
believed it may be associated with
the traditional kairangi names in the
region, given by Kupe.
The seven other Wellington
landmarks to get new or alternative
names are: Ngauranga Stream
becomes Waitohi Stream; Mount
Misery becomes Mount Wai-ariki;
Sinclair Head becomes Sinclair
Head/Te Rimurapa; Red Rocks
becomes Pariwhero/Red Rocks;
Lowry Bay becomes Whiorau/Lowry
Bay; Baring Head becomes Baring
Head/Orua-pouanui; and Steeple
Rock will be Steeple Rock/Te Aroaro-
