Some person changed the name of Ngatiawa River to Waikanae River on Google Maps. Are the residents and Ngatiawa River Monastery aware of this? Did KCDC, DOC or NZTA rename the river without consultation with Ngatiawa tanga whenua of the River and local Residents? Or has someone, with no local history knowledge, made a personal decision. An answer we will seek from the government.
