Kia ora Whanau, if you have any info about the history of Whiti-te-ra it would be awesome to know.

I've heard a few stories already, but want to find out some more.

some say Whiti-te-ra is a section of another dannevirke marae called Aotea?

some say Whiti-te-ra's real name was Poherau, but was renamed by T.W.Ratana?

some say brothers had a falling out and went their separate ways (Ihaka and Matene Rautahi)?

are there any photo's of Aotea tua tahi, Aotea tua rua?

ANY info would be great...
