Land repatriation is the way to go near our marae, see land or houses for sale & buy, even it means going a 3rd with whānau because some of the property around one of my marae in the Horowhenua rohe are almost a million dollars.

Kia ora Nani

Well I have to agree! Where there are no claims in progress, buy back what you can before it gets sold into developers hands or worse into overseas owners hands who really don't care about the significance of the land to our people... its all money to them, to some of us, it is far more than $ and cents.
Naku noa

PS Really enjoy reading and learning about Hauraki, Coromandel, Ngati Paoa...

Kia ora Tirairaka,

DDD had mentioned marututahu, but he means Marutuahu, the keepers of the shrine.

And they are the tangata whenua of the Hauraki, which includes the coromandel.

Kia ora, I see this conversation is over 10 years old ha. But what is your view and knowledge of any maoritangi or evidence of marae situated on the Thames Coast, from Waiomu through to Waikawau? What is/was the iwi there?

Kia ora @mrtwista13

The Census of the Maori Population 1878 has iwi / hapu and kainga listed. I don't know the area you are talking about, but you may recognise some of the places in that, which may give you some answers. 🙂

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
