Discovering my wakapapa
my family name is Grace from Tuparoa (Ruatoria),but I've heard that we are really Waiariki.My great grand father is Raniera (Dan) Grace and my great grand mother is Tukakahumai(Winefred) Beach.
I'am not sure if I have enough information, but I would like to put a tattoo that depicts my whakapapa.
I would also like to now who my ancestors are,going back as far as possible.

Kia ora grace i've just hooked up here and i'm also researching Ngati Apa Nga Waiariki Nga waiariki came to aotearoa way before the first migration there are three that history tells us about but Waiariki or Nga Waiariki is one of the original iwi that migrated to aotearoa is we were one of the very first iwi to be in aotearoa. John Grace's Tuwharetoa is good research material or other books like Rangitane, Te Kauae Raro or the mana whenua Report.
