Kokourarata sounds like an old name for a place known as Kaikoura in the South Island. Then I could be very wrong of course. Good luck ChrisM with your search. It will take you to many places try this link: http://www.tetaurawhiri.govt.nz/english/resources_e/placenames.shtml

[url="http://www.ngaitahu.iwi.nz/koukourarata/"]Te Rünaka o Koukourarata[/url] - the Whakapa Mai link is for contacting them so you could ask there.

Do you have any idea of his real name? How about the names of who took him to Aus?

If so, post that here too as that may awhi others to awhi you.
