Significance of the name Kairua

Wilmers Road is located on former native grasslands/pākihi that were straddled by the headwaters of the Halswell and Heathcote rivers, and is adjacent to a former riverbed that was an ancient course of the Waimakariri River. In 1868 Hapukuku Kairua, a leading chief from Kaiapoi, made a claim to lands in the Hornby/Halswell area extending to the Landsdowne Valley and Tai Tapu. This area contained rich mahinga kai-food and resource gathering and was significant within the overall network of kāinga mahinga kai used by Ngāi Tahu people. The claim was dismissed because the land had already been alienated by the Crown. This claim was given further credence as the descendants and relatives of Hapukuku later imparted mahinga kai knowledge as part of the 1879 Smith Nairn Commission enquiry into Te Kereme, the Ngāi Tahu claim. The Ngāi Tahu Property development at Wilmers Road provides an opportunity to further acknowledge the rangatiratanga and claim of Hapakuku Kairua to the area.
