According to a Maori legend Aoraki was the tallest of three brothers who stranded with their canoe and were turned into stone. The mountain is the high point of New Zealand, in the Southern Alps. The British named the mountain after explorer Captain James Cook. In 1998 it was officially named Aoraki / Mount Cook to also honor the native name of the mountain.
