Mihaka, Raiha raua ko Eruera, Te Ahuahu
Tena koutou katoa, Keita Eruera Mihaka was my great-grandmother, her mother Raiha and her father Eruera Mihaka, both lived at Te Ahuahu in the far north where Keita was born. Is there anyone from up there who knows about these tipuna and the Nga Puhi link in my whakapapa. It is mistifiying me why Keita would travel all the way to Omaio in Te Whanau a Apanui rohe (in those days it would have been quite a journey)to leave her peepi, my grandmother, to be raised there, also the kuia and koroua that my grandmother lived amongst had 1st hand experience of the Nga Puhi 'expeditions'. I would love to know more.
We have a cool history in this country, most especially te ao Maori.
Mauria mai o koutou whakaaro, Maaui Walker.
