My grandparents are Ripeka Karauna (nee Walker) and Hohepa Karauna.

My grandmother is from the East Cape and is of the Ngati Porou Iwi. Her parents are William George Walker and Uruwhiua.

My grandfather is from the Wairarapa and is of the Ngati Kahungunu Iwi. His mother is Merekirihimete Waenga (nee Namana) but he was raised by Joe Karauna Snr and Harete Taitua.

I am searching for whakapapa and any information anyone may have for these families. Anything at all would be very much appreciated.
Thank You
