Place-names are part of the social construction of space and the symbolic construction of meanings about place. The names applied to places in Aotearoa assist in the construction of the symbolic and material orders that legitimate the dominance of a hegemonic Pakeha masculinism. The contestation of place-names in Otago/Murihicu is examined. The AA. present a discursive analysis of submissions made to New Zealand Geographic Board in 1989-90 concerning a proposed reinstatement of Maori names in the area
