Tainui was one of the waka (canoes) used in by the Māori when they came from Hawaiki to Aotearoa New Zealand. After landfall near the East Cape, it followed the coast, was carried across to the Manukau Harbour, and travelled southwards to Kawhia. The waka was buried, and two stones, named Puna and Hine, were placed to mark its bow and stern. Photograph from early 1900s of Puna and Hine, from the Alexander Turnbull Library.
