Maori Translation

Pahi has many meanings.
A large sea going canoe , expedition, slave, person of low birth, irritation of the skin due to eating certain fish, ended and brought to a conclusion.
It maybe that when the Māori came here on their large Waka (canoe), during one of their expeditions, a slave may have eaten the fish, which gave them skin irritations. This may have ended some of their lives bringing it to a conclusion, hence the name Pahi.
