Kia ora whanaunga

I noticed this posting and the name that stood out was Tai Rakena WILSON.

Although I don't know your whanau personally, I do know that Kemara's grandmother was Mihiwairua (nee HAMILTON).

Mihiwairua and my grandmother Lena (nee HAMILTON) were sisters.

I've met Fabian Tai Rakena a few times too.

Just thought that I would say hi, since we're whanaunga ay!!!

I hope that you guys have a good day.

Kia ora e te whanaunga

What a small world! I don't know much, but this is what I have learnt so far, but stand to be corrected if I have it wrong!!

Nanny Mihi is dad's (Maurice Milroy Wilson) mum and she is buried at Aramiro next to Tamehana Tai Rakena (her second husband). This is where mum, dad and Kem are too and where the unveilings are.

Dad's dad is Toby Te Awhata Wilson, who is the first husband to Nanny Mihi.

My brother's full name is Kemera Te Houparoa Hamilton Wilson. If you go to the Whakairo section here at maori.org.nz there is a photo of Kem and a poroporoaki to him. That is also him on the banner at the top of the pages here - the carver. He used to give info for this site until he died.

Great to hear from you and make the connections

Tena koutou,

[url="http://www.maori.org.nz/images/aramiro.gif"]Here[/url] is a link to a map to find Te Kaharoa Marae in Aramiro.

Take State Highway 23 heading towards Raglan. After the climb over the hills, at the bottom to the left is Waitetuna Valley Road - this is the road that you take.
