Found in Te Ao Hou magazine, 1967. Not sure if any good though!

Panapa Haira
Last October, one of the leading elders of the Tuhourangi Tribe, Mr Panapa Haira, collapsed and died in the Wahiao meetinghouse, Whakarewarewa, shortly before he was to unfold plans for a major development scheme for the village.

Mr Haira was chairman of the Whakarewarewa Reserve Incorporation and he had called the meeting partly to explain his scheme, which involved the erection of a new dining room and the conversion of the existing dining-room. Te Tau Aroha.

Born in Te Puke 58 years ago, Mr Haira was in his younger days a keen and skilled rugby and tennis player.

Later he became a leading administrator for both sports and was president of the Whaka Rugby Club.

Mr Haira was twice married. His first wife was Mihitina Rehu who bore him nine children.

Following her death, Mr Haira married Miss Mere Paea of Taumarunui.

Noho ora mai.

From Te Ao Hou magazine, 1956.

At the Rotorua High School prize-giving last year, the two prizes for general excellence in scholastic work and in sport, leadership and character, went to Maori pupils, Wiremu Kingi and Kiri Haira.

Try Kiri Potaka-Dewes, wife of Rev Eru Potaka-Dewes in Rotorua. Eru is an Anglican Minister there. Kiri was a Haira. Another is Donna Hall, the lawyer whose mother Bonita was a Haira.
