I have relatives from Te Whaiti. My father is Tuhoe from Waimana. His brother lived and worked all his life in the Kaingaroa forest and now his children, my first cousins still live and work there.
Te Whaiti marae is a beautiful place. Minganui is basically at the beginning of the Urewera, after Murupara and on the way to Ruatahuna. The Urewera is one of the largest natural bush areas in the southern hemishpere.
The water is crystal clear. The trees are old and majestic. Makes me want to go back for a visit just thinking about it! Hahaha.

Kia ora im originally from Murupara, but we used to live in Te Whaiti. In the mission house with my Matekuare whanau.
It was amazing waking up to fresh air, living across the road from Murumurunga marae, made it even better. Going to see my whanau at every event held at the marae, or to just lend a hand.
