Tena ra koutou o te whanau Ruawai. Greetings everyone I am looking for anyone from the Ruawai whanau that belong to Te Rangiahua Marae, in the Waiau valley, or further a field. My grandfather was Tetuhera (James)Ruawai, his father was Maki Ruawai, and his mother was Haromi Te Aare.

He gave me the name Tamaterangi, which I believe belonged to Chief Tamaterangi of Ngai Tamaterangi?? I would very much like to make contact with any of my grandfathers whanau (Ruawai)who can shed some light as to where my great grandfather Maki came from. I hope to one day visit Te Rangiahua Marae where I believe my grandfather has a strong affiliation.

Oops! The name of the Marae is Te Poho o Tamaterangi, and Rangiahua is the name of the area.
