Anei te korero; and my connection to Whakataute is through his wife Kataraina.
Make contact to my Cousin John Te Huia who lives in Te Kuiti.
The Address is:
1 Hinerangi Street
As your whakapapa link is the same as his, he is a lovely man and I believe he will help you.
Tell him I referred you.

My grand-father, pateriki toma wairehu te huia is the eldest(1st born)to my great-grand parent named wairehu or wiremu and tamera (nee-edward).
Here is when I'm lost my great great grandfather whakataute was married twice, not sure if his first wife is kataraina or ? (don't know 2nd wife name)?
Do you have John email address. Must appreciate it.
Hi there I was just wondering if you knew that there was a TE HUIA/WAIREHU reunion at the start of this year. It was in Stokes Valley. I'm not a relation to this line. My aunty is married into the whanau. Her husband is one of the sons of Tamara. Don't really remember the res, but i could ask my uncle for you.
Kia ora shayemerald
How are you? I know grand-aunty theresa. She's a sister to pateriki my grandfather.
Her sons I can only remember uncles joe, and hank and their sisters aunties judy, & margaret very well.
I also have one picture of wirehu and tamera.
I last saw nanny tamera and koro wirehu living in kawhia at their aotea homestead when I was young.
Please give my love to uncle, I said hello.
Tell him I am the first child of mervyn.
Kia kaha cuzzy

Tena koutou. I've just joined the forum hoping to trace our 'branch' of the Te Huia whanau tree. I've been reading your panui and alot of the korero sounds familiar so I hope I'm on the right track here. As far as I can trace it, my father's whanau lived in Mokau, south-western boundary of Te Rohe Potae. My grandfather was Taiki Te Arawaka Te Huia and his parents were Te Arawaka Te Huia (Tainui) and Hera Te Hou (Wairoa). I have heard that there are Te Huia links via whanau, marae and urupa to Taumarunui, Kawhia, Kihikihi, Mangatoatoa. My whanau (aunts/uncles/cuzzies) are all over the motu - CHCH (Te Huia/Wilson); Hastings (Te Huia/Rehu); also links to O'Briens (Waikawau)/Te Ripo (Ripo)/Inia (Taranaki) whanaunga as well. The furtherest we can trace back is to our g.g.grandfather Te Rira. I agree, the name isn't a common one so there has to be a connection somewhere. Finding the linking tupuna may be the answer. If I were to go on the assumption given to me by kaumatua from Taumarunui, I could track back to Tuwharetoa, then I believe our whanau may have moved their way westwards and became 'lost' from the whakapapa line somewhere as there seems to be strong evidence and connections in central Te Rohe Potae. If anyone recognises any of these names and is able to connect the missing links that would be most helpful. Kia ora mai ano.
