For anyone interested in researching the wider BOP regions early history there is a book called "A History of Tauranga County" written by Dr Evelyn Stokes and first published in 1980.
I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of info and respect given towards the Maori perspective.It contains quite a lot of information about the tribal shifts and history regarding our own tribal wars pre Europeon plus the effects re colonisation
I would think this book is best obtained through the NZ Library service

The Tauranga tribes are going thru their land claims and the claimants extend to this side of the Kaimai ranges into Ngati Haua, Ngati Raukawa, Ngati Pukenga tribal territory, won't be long we will be able to see the research conducted. There has been a lot of shifts from that region into the surrounding tribes.
