Ko te ‘Kahu’ i tēnei horopaki, e mea ana mō te momo 'Kahu' kua rākeitia hei kahu waiwaiā, hei kahu tāniko rānei, arā, he kahu ātaahua. Ko te take i pērātia, anā, mō te tangata he nui tonu tōna mana, kāore mō te tangata noa iho, me whai mana te tangata e taea ai te mau i tēnei momo kahu.
The term ‘cloak’ referred to in this instance is one of great beauty, adorned, embroidered, and woven with much care and skill. This type of cloak is only worn by those with prestige, knowledge, and influence, as was worn by chiefs and leaders.
Ka āpitihia te kupu ‘Pūtoi’, tērā anō te tikanga he huinga kahu o tētehi rōpū tangata he nui tonu te mana kei a rātou. Kua huihuia mai ngā kahu rangatira, ngā kahu ariki rānei, nō reira whakahuatia ai te ingoa he ‘Kahu Pūtoi’ – he huinga rangatira, he huinga ariki rānei te tikanga – nā Mohi Apou (Ngā Rauru).
The word ‘Pūtoi’ has been used to indicate a collection of ‘kahu’ belonging to a group of people of prestige. When a group of leaders and chiefs gather then the combined term Kahu Pūtoi refers to not only the prestige of the individual but moreover the influence of the collective, described and given to be used by Mohi Apou (Ngā Rauru).
