finding whakapapa and iwi
I am trying to find out as much as I can about my whakapapa and iwi but I am having trouble. I have some information which I received from my grandmother but the names she has given me haven't matched up with any that are listed in books or directories. This might be because of spelling. The names I have been given are: Tribe: Ngati Apakura
Tribal division: Rangi Iwhia...Marae: Kohatea
I am not sure if these are the correct names or spellings. If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it..ka kite!
