Angas, George French 1822-1886 :E Wai and Kahoki, nieces of Rauparaha. George French Angas [delt]; W. Hawkins [lith]. Plate 9, 1847.
- 1844 - 1847
- Hawkins, Benjamin Waterhouse, 1807-1894
A seated Maori woman wrapped in a blanket (E Wai inscribed beneath her) to the left of a standing Maori woman in a flax cloak. Behind the women is the Wellington Harbour, with part of Te Aro Pa (pallisades and a house) to the left.
Angas visited New Zealand in 1844.
Rakapa Kahoki is the daughter of Te Rangi Topeora and Te Wehi-o-te-Rangi of Te Arawa, and niece of Te Rangihaeata. She later married Petera Te Pukuatua also of Te Arawa (Ngati Whakaue).
E Wai is thought by some to be Te Wainokenoke, however this is highly unlikely as Te Wainokenoke is shown in another Angas picture with her husband Nohorua (or Tom Street) as a much older woman. This is probably Te Waitaoro who later married the whaler James Cootes. She was closely related to Te Rauparaha, her father Te Poa was Rauparaha's childhood friend, and two of her daughters were later married to Te Rauparaha's great grandson Wineera Te Kanae.
