Golden Bays Maori History & Culture

It is difficult to date accurately the arrival of Maori in Golden Bay (or Mohua, to give the district its old Maori name) but is likely to have been from the earliest times. Some of the place names and legends of Golden Bay are ancient, and derive from the Hawaikian Polynesian roots of the ancestral Maori.
