The place name Waikanae is derived from the river of kanae (mullet) Hau saw while following Wairaka. Reikorangi translated into English means ‘the gate’ or ‘gateway to heaven’. This originated from when a young slave was sent into the valley but did not return. It was assumed he had entered heaven.
