The NZ Geographic Board announced the new name on Wednesday 29th August 2018. Te Kauwae-a-Māui means 'The fish hook of Māui'. In Māori mythology, Te Kauwae-a-Māui is the tip of the fishing hook that Māui used to pull up the North Island/Te Ika-a-Māui ('the fish of Māui'). Read about the name change here. This official name change is reflected in the Te Matau-a-Maui Art & Heritage Trail discovery marker post at Cape View Corner.
The Cape Coast Arts & Heritage Trust reached a milestone on Friday 3rd August 2018 with the inauguration of its Foundation Project, the Te Matau a Maui Art & Heritage Trail. A formal blessing was led by Tom Mulligan, Matahiwi Marae kaumatua, who, along with Hastings District Mayor Sandra Hazlehurst, formerly unveiled the first Marker Post / Discovery Panel installed along the Trail.
