Significance of the name Mānia

The location of the Mānia development is within the claim area of Hapakuku Kairua, and on the soils and aggregate formed by a former flow of the Waimakariri River as it arced around and linked to the course now occupied by the Huritini/Halswell River. The river trail has intermittent evidence of the use of the river course as a trail and for mahinga kai, predominantly in the form of nohoanga and food refuses. This locality is also positioned within the west portion of formerly vast expanse of open plains dominated by native grasses and ferns, that bordered the western most portion of environs that became west Christchurch. The evidence denoting former open plains dominated by fern and native grasslands appears on the earliest European survey maps of the mid-19th century. To acknowledge the resources and environs once utilised by Māori ancestors, use of Māori names for features such as Grasses/Mānia, Ferns/Arrhe and plan-lands/Pākihi have been gifted by Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnunga to this Ngāi Tahu Property development.
