MOHI, Hinewehi

Kia Ora te whanau,
I'm researching information for a unit I'm doing for year 1 Te Ara Reo o Te Wananga o Aotearoa.
The unit is He Tangata Ronginui and the person I have chosen is Hinewehi Mohi. Watching the document on her a few months ago gave a small insight into the struggles she has been through as a single mum and how much joy her daughter brings into her an her husbands' life and how far she has come. For all this she is a woman to be admired.
Now that I've written a short story, here are my questions:
1. Does anyone know the names of her parents.
2. Does anyone know the name of her husband.
3. How many brothers and/or sisters (if any) does she have
4. Where is Hinewehi based now.
I've searched our library to no success, I've searched the intenet and got some information off, but the above info I can't find.
Anyone able to help this struggling tauira would be forever in my prayers. I need to put together a 5 min korero for this unit.

Kia ora Lizzy.

Hi Lizzy - I knew hinewehi's parents many years ago, her father is Mike Mohi & the mum was an english lady, I think she had another sister, her family links could be to Paki Paki just south of Hastings in Hawke's Bay.

She also works at Maori Television I think - here is the url - maybe you can contact her through there?

Hi Lizzy - just thought I would let you know that she was on the cover of the Mana magazine, you will have to go to the web site to find out which one as you can purchase back copies. There was a nice story about her & her daughter. Hope this is a help to you.
Cheers
