Was Wiremu Hoete of Ngati Paoa? Id be interested to hear from you all. Or was he Ngati Maru? Or are both tribes the same? And are they both sub tribes of Taninui?

Ngati Paoa and Ngati Maru are both distinct iwi. Both (with other iwi) form a confederation consisting of Marutuahu's descendants. This confederation in turn, with all of its iwi, form a part of the confederation of tribes known as Tainui but they are not subtribes in any sense at all.
