Kia Ora Missy, there is Riwaka whanau that stays in Waikawa Bay. Have you contacted them, their mother Remana - was your aunt (she is sister to Penaha Riwaka). I'm not sure - is Penaha Maori for Benjamin perhaps?
I have Riwaka on my whakapapa; and the connection to Te Ati Awa is via Puketapu hapu.
We should "chat"...
Tena koe e hoa, ae yes aunty Remana was my dads sister, thankyou for that, someone told me that my hapu might be "Puketapu Maniapoto", but just thought i might get a lil bit more confirmation before i used that in my Whakawhanaungatanga at my Te Reo Kura.
No reira kei a pakiki au. No whea koe?,Ko wai o matua?
