Ngati Rangi

Kia Ora Koutou,
Could someone help me with this query please. As I understand it Ngati Rangi is a hapu of Nga Puhi. I see that Ngati Rangi is also in other areas, i.e. Tuwharetoa, Wairoa/Nuhaka area. Can someone give me a general idea of why this is so. Are they one in the same iwi just in different rohe or are they separate iwi altogether?

Tena ano koutou.

yes,the name ngati rangi is wide spread but not because it is the same iwi/hapu right throughout the country.

for instance,in ngapuhi there is the hapu ngati rangi who are descended of rangiheketini.in rangitane there is another hapu called ngati rangi but they descend from rangiwhakaewa.and on the coast there is a hapu called ngati rangi descended from ...well i dont actually know!

the point is that many tipuna across aotearoa were named rangi and their descendants often took the name ngati or ngai te rangi.to differentiate themselves,they may be referred to by their full tipuna name, such as ngati rangiheketini, ngati rangiwhakaewa or ngai te rangihouhiri.

Kiaora,
I have a query about Ngati Rangi, I am trying to find out some information about Ngati Rangi in the Whanganui area. Where did the Ngati Rangi from that area originate from? Also does anyone know where I could find more info on Ngati Rangi?

Yes I'm referring to the Ohakuni district and someone told me that Ngati Rangi is from the Waiouru area as well, do you know if this is true?
Thanks for your help so far. I'm looking for legends from the Whanganui area would anyone know about that as well?

Kia Ora,
Yes I have heard of Ngati Rangi in the Ohakune area too - though not sure about Wanganui. Would love to know if there is any common link(??) Quite a well known legend is the one of Hau and the naming the rivers through the Rangitikei/Manawatu area - it is a moteatea also. Check out the book Rangitane.

Kia Ora Iwi Katoa. I have not long come off the site for Ngati Rangi there is some information there about Wanganui..... Oh and by the way thanks for the information. I was wondering why my Tupuna named her Hapu as Ngati Rangi and her iwi is Ngati Kahunguru now I understand.
