Tena koe Kuri,
You will find that this is the Hokianga whanau from Onuku near Okaroa in Canterbury. What a remarkable find! I'm sure the whanau at Onuku Marae will appreciate knowing this exists and may even make a bid for it ehoa.
You can Google Onuku Marae for more info.
Heoi ano,
Ngaku

Tena koe Ngakau;

Thanks for that the item was sold for $41.00 AUD, and as the first bid was from NZ I thought it was definitely going home so I stayed my hand, it went to an Oz buyer who made a last minute bid so I will try to keep a record of the item if any whanau is interested.

I think that we should all keep our eyes open for taonga that need to go home.
