Kia Ora!

I went to school with two Hiku boys, one called Terry Hiku and Tai Hiku 1986-1987 Te Awamutu Intermedite. I remembered they had dark beautiful skin and shiny black hair and your typical Maori boy features which you hardly see nowadays too much peroxide ne! They moved away not long after but something happened and yeah gone the next day practically.
hope this was helpful or put you in the right direction for finding your whanau.

My dad's first wife was Mere [Mary] Hiku from Hokianga [Waima I think]. From that marriage, they had my older half-sister. Mary Hiku would have been born somewhere in the 1930's.
I am from my old man's third spouse.
Would appreciate any info on Mary's whanau please.

Kia ora!

Hello all,

My name is Lee Hiku, I'm the son of William Hiku, who is the son of James Hiku and his father is Te Aru, or according to Uncle Whare it's Tu Te Aru. Any ways, after reading the above...Manoaa, Panapa & Tu Te Aru are brothers and they are 3 of the 13 children of Hori & Ngahuia Hiku.
I have a brother (Hemi) living in Waiuku, close contact to Uncle Whare, this is where and how I get my information.

I have part of a family tree that dates back to 1840 (excel spreadsheet) if you would like a copy, just email me at dahiku@bigpond.com

I live in Horsham, Victoria. I've been in oz for 13 years.
