NGATI POROU WHAKAPAPA
Kia Ora koe hearty nati
I have a panui on searching for tupuna and I have been searching
for many years for my dad's whanau from Te Araroa well that is what
I have been told anyway and my dad's whanau is the Kahaki whanau
my grand dad was Anaru and my grandma was Materoa and she was a Kamera
myself and my siblings never ever got to meet any of my dads siblings or Parents or for that matter none of his cousins so I am very lost cause I know that out there some where I have first cousins and mokopuna's that I would dearly love to embrace them with heaps of hugs. My dad's name was Ato Te Urikore Kahaki and I was told that one of his marae's was Hinerupe whether that is true I dont know so any info will be greatfully appreciated.
naku noa na Inu
Tena Koe Hearty
ive just familiarised myself with my whakapapa no kona, but i cant really remember much about that place. and my patai is... there is a marae at the end of the road at te araroa.. on your way to that look out thingee.. its on the right along the dirt road..
so if you could tell me bout that marae, and maybe bout the rohe and tikitiki i will be very thankful.
i know that they are from around the wiapu river valley,mainly around ruatoria and tikitiki but no,unfortunately i dont know much.
however get in touch with uncle api,he would probably have a whakapapa there.i dont know his number but the number for ngati porou runanga where you can get it from is 06 8649004
hope that was a bit of an awhina
Hello Hearty Ngati 😉
I'm wondering if you may be able to help with the following query.
I have been given, after several pass-me-on a copy of a wakapapa drawn up for a second or third uncle around 1940 by a person named Ariana TUATI. The chart descends down to about the middle of 19th century.
I am hoping that someone may be able to tell me who Ariana TUATI was.
sorry people ive been really slack lately but ive been studyin hard for my exams, hope they go well!!
um ruataepupuke was the father of ruapani who was a major ancestor of the east coast, especially around the turanga region but his descendants are now found at waikaremoana and waikareiti.he was the high ariki of turanga due to his descent from the ariki lines of horouta waka. his descendants heavily intermarried with ngati kahungunu, te aitanga a mahaki and rongowhakaata.
the following is the whakapapa from paoa and kiwa of horouta to ruapani:
paoa(captain of horouta) kiwa(tohunga of horouta)
hineakaua = kahutuanui
ruarauhanga = kahungunu
there is another ruatepupuke who is aid to be responsible for carving. the story goes that ruatepupuke (not the same one as above) was living at uawa on the east coast.his son was taken by tangaroa to his house tonganui beneath the sea.ruatepupuke swam down and took hi son back and stole a tekoteko from atop of tangaroas house which he copied and is the source of carving on the east coast.ruatepupuke's son married into ngati ira of the region who became te aitanga a hauiti, te whanau a apanui and some hapu of ngati porou
tena koe epimoa, can u tell me anything about where ur tipuna came from or what hapu they belonged to?that would make it alot easier but my intial reaction is around uawa (tolaga bay)
theas also the story of mataora who got moko from ruaumoko...interested?
mataora was a man and lived in hawaiki.one day he was in the forest and he saw a beautiful wahine named niwareka walk past so he followed her and she went into a cave.he caught up with her and they fell in love and she lived with him.
one day he got so angry that he hit her.she cried and fled back to the cave,mataora chased after her and found that the cave was actually a tunnel which led to the underworld raraohenga.
mataora went below and saw niwareka next to her father uetonga.uetonga was a mokopuna of ruaumoko who had the first moko which was made by the seperation of rangi and papa.tane stood on papas belly and pushed down on ruaumoko which caused him to scram and shake below, causing earthquakes.the pain was etched forever on his face as moko.
uetonga was tattooing a man with the uhi and mataora said to him, 'thats not how moko is done!' mataora had a moko, but his was painted on while the one uetonga was giving was carved onto the face.
uetonga laughed and wiped mataoras drawings off which is where the lines above the eyes (tiwhana) and the lines around the mouth originate from.
mataora then touched uetongas and it was carved into his living flesh.mataora then apologised to niwareka and he was given a true moko.
niwareka and mataora returned to the living world and niwareka bought with her a korowai which is how weaving was brought to men.
mataora = niwareka
takotowaimua = haukiterangi
kehutikoparae = manutangirua
hingangaroa = iranui
ngati porou come from this line
