We are wanting to organise a carved 21st key with relevant Ngapuhi design. A friend asked what sub tribe is my Dad from. So my question is how do we go about finding out what sub tribe he is from and is there such a design relating to the ngapuhi people? Appreciate any help 21st is in 4 weeks and no carver on the horizon as yet. We are in Brisbane Australia.

Kia ora
Which part of the north is your dad from? that should indicate which hapu (sub tribe) he is. Let us know here and we will help you out. 4 weeks to get a key carved in Brisbane is cutting it fine. Others on this site may know a carver on your side of the ditch.

Thanks for your reply. My Dad is from Kaikohe. I have been put in touch with a master carver on the Gold Coast and just spoke to him today and he can help us out. I would appreciate any info about Dad's hapu though so we can inform this carver.
Cheers

Thanks Phebs
The 21st was fantastic, the whanau young & old performed the haka for our son and the carved key is awesome. It tells the story from my Dad's heritage thru to Ben (my son)living in the 2 worlds 1 maori and the other pakeha which his my hubby's heritage. His grandfather explained the key as we presented it to him very emotional stuff. So if you or anyone else needs a carver his name is Jack Berryman.
Thanks again
Tracey
