Tapora Hoori - nee Wright - Oruawharo Marae
Kia ora e te whanau,
I am searching for information regarding my kuia Tapora Hoori. She was married at Oruawharo marae to an English man Herbert Wright. Tapora's parents are Hamahona Hoori (dad) and Hana Pae Te Awe (mother), mother's line from Kaipara, father I am unsure, but I belive the Hoori line are descendents from Te Arawa. Any information would be highly appreciated.
