Kia Ora tash11,
Welcome, now regarding your search, we have a Whanau of Ratahi's living here in Matata. If you dont know Matata, we are half an hour from Whakatane.
But I understand that Uncle Pat Ratahi was Ngati Mahuta, Tainui.
If you could elaborate more about your search, we can narrow it down to the correct Whanau of Ratahi of your search. Kia Ora Ano.
