Heipipi Pa in Napier is thought to be one of the oldest pa in Hawke's Bay. It is distinctive as ‘the pa that was never conquered by attack’. Heipipi was built at least four hundred years ago and it is probable that many people lived on the site over a very long time and modified it according to their needs. The hapu associated with the pa include Ngati Whatumamoa, Ngati Awa, Ngati Maru iwi and Ngati Kahungunu particularly Ngati Matepu.
