Historical Notes: Te Rehe was Rangatira of Te Wai a te Rua Ti Pa, at the mouth of the Opihi River, near Temuka, South Canterbury, but (if the word Akaroa has been correctly deciphered on this work) he must have visited Akaroa at the time Oliver was there. Te Rehe is mentioned as one of a group involved in an altercation during a journey between the spit of Lake Ellesmere (Kaitoretei) and Taumutu, when he was accompanying a contingent of Kaiapoi chiefs (See "Akaroa and Banks Peninsula" (1940), page 31-32).
