Tauwhare whanau came backtoWaipapa marae in Kawhia in 1990 tohave a reunion.They came tothe opeining of Taku Hiahia meeting house.

The whanau migrated to hokitika 100 years or so,ago,that's where a lot of the Tauwhare side is now.

The hapu backat Waipapa in Kawhia is Ngati Hikairo,soyou could gothere (they have the cover of the 1990 reunion bookon the wall in the wharenui,or you could try any of the Tauwhare whanau staying in Hokitika
