of Ngai Tahu, and
Waiakaroa of Ngati Apa
Ngai Tahu is the tribe which now inhabits most of the South Island, largely supplanting and absorbing Ngati Mamoe, and Waitaha before them. However there are many who retain a primary allegience to the two earlier tribes.
Ngati Apa has it's main roots in the Rangitikei district of the North Island, and has members in the North of the South Island around present day Blenheim. Prior to its invasion by Te Rauparaha of Ngati Toa, Ngati Apa inhabited Kapiti Island off the coast North of Wellington.
