dc.description.abstract Many studies have been written on tapu, but the meaning of this Polynesian word bas remained largely confused. This study is an attempt to remove some of the confusion by seeking to establish what tapu meant to three Maori writers of the late 1840s, early 1850s. The primary sources for this Maori view of tapu are a Ngaati Paoa manuscript, a Kawhia manuscript and a Te Arawa versicn of the Rangi and Papa creation story. The Ngaati Paoa account of tapu and the Kawhia account of tapu and mana have not been previously pUblished, and all three manuscripts are.part of Grey's New Zealand Collection of Maori Manuscripts, held by the Auckland Public Library. en
