Akaroa – Old Maori place names round Akaroa Harbour

Published in 1967, this book by Louis J. Vangioni includes information on original place names in the Akaroa area along with a hand-drawn map and other comments by D.J.C. Pringle.

Vangioni had elicited the place names for his publication by questioning the older generation of local Maori people living in the area some 50-60 years earlier.
