Kia Ora,

What area up Nth is your whanau from?
Ngati Hine is from Kawakawa.

You will find this site very helpful from the members, so the more info you can provide, you can sit back and watch the help pour in.

take care

Kia ora Iki,

This is a simple guideline for you.

In Maori, whanau does not mean mum, dad and 2.5 children. The square box image of today's society.

We have whanau making up many members of your family.
We then have many families making up a hapu (sub or small tribe as such).
We then have many hapu within nui rohe (huge area) known as our iwi or tribe.

So, Nga Puhi is an iwi. The Rohe (area or boundary) of Nga Puhi is within the Tai Tokerau (Northland) rohe (area). My iwi is Ngati Whatua ki te Kaipara, and this is within the Dargaville area, Northland, Nga Puhi begins around Whangarei and goes right up to Te Rarawa, which is another Iwi around Kaitaia. Nga Puhi also covers the Hokianga, there's also another Iwi there named Ngati Kahu. If you go to a library and have a look at Maori history, you will discover pictures showing the boundaries of each iwi, bearing in mind, these are up for dispute really, my tupuna (ancestors) shared their knowledge of our rohe (boundary) by a large oak tree at the bottom of our Maunga (mountain).

Good luck with your endeavour, and I truely welcome the interest anybody has in discovering who they are as Maori.

Just so you know, in Maori Tikanga (Philosophy), it was foreseen as such, a change in all Maori once Makariki (Maori new year) begins, which was only last month in July in 2006. This year marks the year when Maori start to go home. This doesn't mean, physically going home, but going home to our true selves, who we are as Maori and what that really means. I personally started with Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The treaty of Waitangi), where this uncovered a real open, blatant disregard to a culture, our culture by the colonists. It gave me the passion to search and search and eventually searching my whakapapa and found some beautiful people to talk to online at maori.org.nz, and I am extending that aroha to you all here, learning and starting to discover who you are. Kia ora, tena pae.

Kia ora maori pwincezz. on the subject of hapu from Nga Puhi, its still a slight mystery for me. My hapu on my Papa side Waekoi, we hang out in Waihou, just of of Panguru.I also read your profile and saw you be looking for your papa and whanau for Kaikohe/Ngawha. My papa stays up your way and he may be able to help you find some answers. Look him up on this site Wimutu Te Whiu. Hope this helps

Kia Ora,
You are definitely Ngati Hine if you're from Motatau.
I'd say you come off an extended whanau group. As the hapu got bigger the many whanau probably wanted their own autonomy. Someone can correct me on this. The place next to Motatau is Pipiwai and they're known as Te Orewai.

Kia ora I too am lost and am not sure which area we belong to up north? Sarah Tiraroa married Dennis Browne Cochrane and they had 5 children. Information I have come across states Sarah Tiraroa is of Te Rarawa tribe. I thought we belong to Nga Puhi and this has confused me as well as reading "Hokianga" by Jack Lee as in the back there are sooooo many hapu.
I would appreciate the help I too am tyring to find my whanau and looking for Sarah Tiraroa whakapapa.

Kiaora everyone,
I've also started searching this year for my maori history as it was denied to us by our close relatives, I'm not sure why but the information is kept from my father and us. I know now that my Grandma grew up in Kaeo, we are decendents of Te Ururoa, Arana Ururoa & Annie Flavell from ngapuhi, hapu= ngati uru.
A lot of the information I've found from people on this site, it's more than I could have imagined to find out. My cousins and I have been wondering for so long!
If this sounds familier to anyone drop me a message, also if anyone has any information on the marae in kaeo, let me know. I've visited a few sites and I know my Grandma worked in the freezing works there which i've seen photos of. It means a lot to me to be uncovering our history.
