While not the biggest waterfall known in the Homeland, Tukutuku is arguably the most beautiful. It falls through a series of shelves which capture the fresh water before it falls into the shallow, warm lagoon. Tukutuku is also the place where an ancient ritual of the natives takes place. Whenever a foal is born, it is taken to the waterfall and bathed within its sacred waters. It is then considered blessed and that it will live a strong, fruitful life.
Whaka-Ma Pass is made of a series of half-submerged sandbars that have been created over time by the waves and the currents. The water is extremely shallow around Whaka-Ma Pass, making for easier travelling between the three islands. Many different species of smaller marine life make the sandbars their home so be careful where you tread.
The smallest of the three islands, Hihiri is too small to support anything more than a few individuals and therefore cannot be claimed. The link between Tangaroa and Kahukura, it is most often used as a passageway between the two larger islands. Although small it is perhaps the most serene island, with the largest source of freshwater to be found amongst the islands. Skirmishes between the natives are often brought here to be settled.
