Cape Kidnappers has a new name: Cape Kidnappers / Te Kauwae-a-Māui

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').
