NGATI HAUA / NGATI HAU NUI A PAPARANGI
I am very new to this website and also very new to exploring my Maori history.
My Grandamother was Dorothy Paretauhinga Tanoa her parents were:
Father Kopere Tonga Tanoa
Mother Wikura Tuiariki
I am interested to know which Iwi (is that tribe) we belong to?
I was not rasied with a very good understanding of the Maori langue and culture and fing the language very difficult, so excues me if I get it wrong.
Anyway hope someone out there can help.
