Kia ora. In the early 1980s, I spent a few years in Haumoana which is a small seaside town in Hastings. There was a family in that area named Whatarangi, and one of the 'nannies' lived near the Matahiwi Marae which isn't too far for Haumoana.
If you were to contact this Marae, I'm sure that someone there would be able to put you on the right track to find your tipuna.

If you go to http://www.whitepages.co.nz and do a search for the surnames Whatarangi and Tapatahi you will find a few listings so maybe these people will be able to help you.
Good luck and let us know how you get on

who knows we could be related
Tena Koutou katoa?
Ae you are all related: Uncle Ted and Aunty Mihi Whatarangi lived in Waimiha and yes the whanau is still there.
Nanny Nahe whanau still lives in Waimiha, though nanny has since passed away many years now.
Check the phone book Taumarunui and look for the whanau names of Whatarangi in Taumarunui and you have made the right connection.
And yes, the name Tapatahi is Nanny Nahe and Nanny Mihi maiden names.
Go hard whanau, you'll get there.
