Kia Ora hkaranui.
I read your post and am interested in knowing who your grandmothers name was. I am also a decendant of Hori Wairama Maihi through his last wife Mihi Peka Murupaenga. I believe that he had three wives which was not unusual back then. Another wife of his was Lovinia Puhipi Nepia

My grandfather is David Muru - grandmother Hannah Muru (nee Dunn).

I tried to contact you but perhaps your e-mail address has changed. I would really like to get in contact with you.

Kia ora,

My name is Oriana Thompson (Tamihana). My Father (is the third eldest) Benjamin Tamihana son of Maihi Te Huhu Tamihana and Rawinia Tamihana nee Hemi Maaka. Both descendants of Te Huhu and Maata. My Grandfather Maihi Te Huhu grandmother is Ngapeka Panapa (Wairama sister) and My Grandmother Rawinia her Great Grandfather is Wairama Maihi Te Huhu. So my whanau is very close linked so I have recently discovered. I am on a whakapapa hikoi as well. I have read whanau comments in here it's very exciting as you can imagine. I never met my Grandmother so I didnt grow up with much of her whanau. It's great to know how vast our whanau is.
