MAKI, Nga Uri O Tauwhitu
Tena koe e Hohaia!
As well as being Patuone's great-great grandson and his closest living uri (my grandmother Hoana Hohaia was a daughter of Patuone's son Hohaia and she married Okeroa Pitman), through Okeroa, my other great-great grandfather was Tauwhitu but the Tauwhitu from Mahurangi. I have written about the Tauwhitu who was involved in the killing ot Te Auparo and Te Karehu in my forth-coming book, Patuone, Peacemaker: A Life in Context. I will also put it on my website: http://www.patuone.com.
I have been reading your contributions to various forums. Ka pai to mahi!
As you know, Te Wharerahi married Tari, sister of Patuone and Nene. Check out the tatai on my site. I have a few changes to make and a lot more tatai and information to put up.
Nga mihi mo te tau hou!
