My grandmother was Kumeroa Rarere from Mahia, and her brothers and sisters were, Materoa, Reretapua, Te Paea, Pango, Te Teira (1), Hera, Raiha, Matetoa or might be Materoa (2),Makuini, Hami Koroni, Matekino,and Ataria Te Teira (2),
These are some of the names of their spouses: ?Hokena?, ?Cunningham, Winiata (my koro last name), ?Hoepo, ?Rahapa?, ?Wainohu and Irihapeti
My condolence to Chas Paku, whom I have just heard lost his wife Ngataiwhakarewa last year, I'd been wondering why all went quite from her on Maori Org Papa Panui, she wrote in about your connections to Kumeroa Rarere, and then we found out that we had connects to her own whanau. To Chas and your whanau once again I'm so sorry for your sad loss.

I don't know much at all about Kui Materoa, all I know is that she was a sister to my kuia. I'm hoping to meet any whanau who descent from my nanny's brothers and sisters, I did get some feedback b4 from whanau, but they were accidentally deleted. Somebody might come in and touch on your korero, I hope so cos I want to know now.

I wish so too! Hope you find your whanau.
I've been searching many years.
Maybe if I can post this could be a clue.
"Green pendant pounamu" gives to me by her since aged 3yrs old, still beautiful and have it
50 yrs now.
Seemed to me this is the end of my search.
I'm happy my greenstone pendant pounamu came from a very special person whoever she was to me. Was she my nana or my mama?
Good luck to you kiriwai
