This is probably a simple question but I am new to tracing my whakapapa. Which marae are associated with Ngati Matakore? Any help would be much appreciated, cheers!

Kiaora i have ties to Ngaati Matakore. Where im from its a hapu of Maniapoto but others say its a iwi in itself. Marae in the Maniapoto/King Country region that affiliate with Matakoe are...

Kahotea near Otorohanga
Kaputuhi near Waitomo
Kakepuku Papakainga in the Te Mawhai area
Te Hokinga mai ki te Nehenehenui- Otewa area
Napinapi marae near Piopio
Rereahu in Mangapeehi
Te Hape in Bennydale

So Matakore belongs to quite a few marae. also in the 18th century when a few iwi from Waikato region migrated south to the Manawatu/ Rangitikei area some of Ngaati Matakore went aswell and they still remain strong there, there marae lye along the Rangitiikei river around Feilding area.

Hope this was of any help
