Ko Ngāti Meroiti tētahi o ngā hapū o Rangitāne. Whakapapa ai te iwi o Rangitāne i a Whātonga, te kaihautū o te waka a Kurahaupō. I pae te waka ki Te Māhia, kei te tai rāwhiti o Te Ika-a-Māui. I takea mai te ingoa o te iwi i te mokopuna a Whātonga, a Rangitāne. Ko tētahi o ōna ingoa ko Tāne-nui-a-rangi.

Ko te rohe o Heretaunga te kāinga tuatahi o Rangitāne. Nāwai ā, ka heke whakatetonga ia ki ngā takiwā o Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua, o Te Wairarapa, tae rawa atu ki Te Wairau i Te Wai-pounamu. Ko Manawatū, ko Horowhenua, ko Te Whanganui-a-Tara ētahi atu rohe kua nōhia e Rangitāne.
