Kiaora thought I would bump this up again... I'm Kayes friend who is supporting her to find her whanau. Kaye also has a brother Joseph Tainui. Any help would be much appreciated especially to recontact her with her mum and also finding out hyer connection to Ngati Porou. (P.S. not sure if her marae is Waiomatatini at this stage) Kei te ako tonu maua ka haerere i tenei haerenga, no reira awhina mai, aroha mai - kia ora ra
