Turi (Māori ancestor)
Arrival in New Zealand
After a conflict in which he killed the son of the chief Uenuku, Turi departed for New Zealand with many others in the Aotea Canoe. This canoe had been given to Turi by Toto, father of Turi’s wife Rongorongo. In some traditions, Turi and his party stopped at Rangitāhua, believed by some to be Raoul of the Kermadec Islands, where they encountered some of the crew from the Kurahaupō canoe. Continuing on, Turi and his followers eventually arrived and settled at Aotea Harbour on the west coast of the North Island.
