i'm looking for any information available inregards to the Tanatiu whanau, first and foremost the name of my great grandfather's (Karawinia Tanatiu) father. Te Rangirangi Puhata a.k.a Mauho Puhata is the mother of Karawinia however his fathers full name is unknown, karawinia had a brother called Tapeta and a Sister called Mei. All were raised in the Eastern Bay of Plenty in an area called Hawai not far from opotiki. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
