Kia Ora Lost Rawiri.
I was adopted by a Jack and Mihi Hemara from Otorohanga. My step-mums,[Mihi]maiden name was Mihi Rawiri. She had a sister Betty, and two brothers, Deedo and "baby boy".
Their fathers and mothers name were Peho, and Mangu-Mangu Rawiri.[second wife].
The Rawiri's I refer to, are from Otewa, just out of Otorohanga.
A proud Maniapoto family.
Peho had a lot to to with accompanying King Koriki around in his time of reign.
You can contact my sister in Hamilton on 078477739 for more information if you have nowhere else to turn.
Hope you find what you're looking for, as I am just beginning my search.
