Hapu - Hamua o te Matehou
Hi there, I have been looking into my family roots recently and have a number of hapu listed but can't find much info on any of them. What I seem to have seems to be contradictory. I always understood that I was Te Atiawa from Taranaki and Waiwhetu. Hapu Hamua o te Matehou. My marae is listed as Parihaka. Does this make sense to anyone? I would love to learn more. Any help would be great.
