On 23 May 1840, Hōrī Kīngi Te Anaua signed the Cook Strait sheet of te Tiriti o Waitangi at Whanganui. Te Anaua, as well as his brother Te Māwae and sister Te Rere-ō-maki, signed te Tiriti o Waitangi at Pakaitore (on or near the site of Moutoa Gardens). His tohu can be seen here: www.nzhistory.net.nz/media/interactive/henry-williams-tre…

Te Anaua was the respected leader of Ngāti Ruaka of Te Ati Haunui-a-Paparangi, based at Putiki Wharanui pā near the mouth of the Wanganui River. He was descended from Hinengakau, his father was Te Aewa; his mother was Titia.
