Looking for The Whakapapa of TOKO RATIMA PAKAI …….Up and Down for myself and my children who are the great great great grandchildren of Toko.

My grandfather who passed away  was the son of Ethel Timmo. She had 6 kids too Toko 4 boys(Jack,Danny,Desmond,?) and 2 girls (Joan and Rosemary). My Grandfather is Danny Ratima.

I would love to find out as much as I can to re connect and also want to find out what our PEPEHA is. My Aunty Rosemary gave me this information but she was not sure if it was correct or of the spelling

Kahuranaki Maunga
Pokawa Awa
Ngati Whatitapiti te Iwi
Rangiwhuanaki Hapu
Takitimu Waka
Hapuku Tangata

I always had something else stuck in my head for some reason so Im not sure if this is ours or not
