Ngāti Pūkenga Iwi, Quick facts | Ngāpeke

Ngāti Pūkenga had very strong whakapapa connections with Ngāti Hē, a hapū of Ngāi Te Rangi, in Tauranga. Ngāti Hē asked Ngāti Pūkenga for support against another Ngāi Te Rangi hapū at Matapihi. Ngāti Pūkenga agreed to do this.

In recognition of the support given, Ngāti Hē gifted lands at Ngāpeke to Ngāti Pūkenga. This also acted as a buffer between Ngāti Hē and Ngā Pōtiki who were at odds with each other at that time.
