Name/Title
Copy of original carte de visite portrait of a woman identified as 'Puhiwahine', wife of Wiremu Kingi Te Rangitaake, mother of Pehi, grandmother of Te Rako. It is likely the description name reflects this woman's status as puhi, a woman of prestige within her iwi. Gordan thereby identifies the woman in this portrait as Te Kautu-ki-te-rangi who was Te Rangitaake's first wife, the mother of Eruera Kingi Te Pehi, who had a son Eruera Reretawangawanga Te Rako.

In the portrait, Te Kautu-ki-te-rangi is seated, appearing from the waist up, facing toward her right and looking down. Her chair is slightly visible on the right side of the photograph. She wears her hair out at shoulder length with a fringe. She is also wearing a kaitaka, adorned with feathers on her left shoulder, and a lace with three pounamu around her neck. The photograph is included on page 48 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
