Hello,I am looking for any information on my mothers whanau the Rikona's.I have heard a story that their name was changed to Rikona years and years ago.My mothers family were raised in Katikati years ago on a farm somewhere.When she was a little older they move to Tokoroa.She has 6 brothers [Beads,Eric,James,Roger,Peter and Paul were twins they were adopted out when they were little.]and 6 sisters [Julia{Duchess},Florence{Nan or nigger},Rose{Rosygirl or Chicaloo},Ceceila,April,Ruth was adopted out to the whanau.I know lots about my fathers whakapapa and nothing about my mums whanau.My aunty and uncle still live in Katikati today with my cousins.They live down on the flats at the bottom of the marae{marae name unknown}.If any who knows anything about my whanau it would be greatly appreciated....
