Im looking for help with any information about the whanau of
"Metiria Rawiri"(deceased) from Whirinaki/Hokianga - so that i can identify with my grandmother's & mother's iwi/hapu.

I thought it was important for me not to assume that my late grandmother who passed before i was born, was of Ngapuhi - so, this prompted me to find out for sure about what my tupuna's iwi & hapu are.

Here is what i have about my grandmother: Her whanau are from Whirinaki near Opononi/Hokianga (marae name:unknown)
Her name is Metiria Rawiri of >Hone Rawiri & Matapuna.
Hone Rawiri of>Mamae Rawiri.
Matapuna of>(f)Te Wi Kingi or Matapuna Te Wi or Meteria Te Kingi.

Tena koe,
I value your response
