Maaka/Grace Help to learn my Mihimihi

Could someone please help me I am starting to learn Te Reo and I am stuck when I have to learn my Mihimihi...

I was born in Christchurch, but my mother was born in Masterton (past away 1990). My father is unknown. My whanau Marae is Papawai.

How do I find my taku mauka, taku awa, taku waka, te takata, taku iwi, taku hapu, taku marae - (Papawai).

The only line I can follow is my mother.
My Grandfather is a Maaka
My Grandmother is a Grace

Any help would be fantastic...
