DUAL LANDMARK NAMES PART OF TE ATIAWA REDRESS
Official name changes to six New Plymouth landmarks are a sign Te Atiawa are reasserting their footprints on the Taranaki landscape, an iwi leader says . The landmarks were granted dual name status as a result of the Te Atiawa Treaty settlement.
The name change means they will formally recognised by both their Maori and English names, the New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa announced on Saturday.
