For those who are looking for their whakapapa for the Wiparata whanau anei, engari for the cuzz who knows more bout our whakapapa please include he mihi. I know how rough life can be not knowing where you come from or who you are so I hope I can be some help to the whanau who are searching. It toke me a long time to search for my whakapapa but when I did I was so releived! Heres some places you can search for more information. If you can find Kaikohe on the map go there and ask for information on the wiparata whanau or directions to Taheke. Kia Kaha kotou!
