Kahukura Neighbourhood - Sold
Kahukura neighbourhood is named after rainbow and spirit guardian.
Kahukura is one of the Māori names for a rainbow and also refers to a local peak on the Port Hills, known as 'Te Tihi o Kahukura' - The citadel of Kahukura'. Kahukura was also the spirit guardian invoked by local tohunga (expert/priest) and appealed to for advice and omens in times of war.
Each hapu (sub-tribe) had an image of Kahukura, often a small carved wooden figure, which was kept in a tapu (sacred) place.
