Rangikapiti Pa is a significant site for Ngati Kahu, and the terraces and defensive ditch can still be clearly seen. Legend says that it is named after the wife of the Maori chieftain Moehuri. I am not sure if it is significant that ‘kapiti’ can mean the ‘cleft between the rocks’. There is certainly wonderful outlook over the surrounding countryside and bays.
