Taane Nui a Rangi
Receives New Names

Now when Taane Nui a Rangi exited the guard house, Tawhirirangi, by way of the Koro Pihanga of the rearmost part of the house; he had now arrived at Te Toi oo Ngaa Rangi.

He was taken by Ruatau, Puha oo Rangi and Ohomairangi, onto Te Wai oo Rongo and there again purified, and the additional names given him:


1. Taane Nui a Rangi
2. Taane te Waananga a Rangi
3. Taane te Waiora
4. Taane Matua
5. Taane te Tahurangi
6. Taane te Torohaka
7. Taane Maiki Roa

These are the names then given him; but the first one he had already received from Ruatau and Rehua, when he was sanctified on Mount Maunganui.
