I knew of a TeWaka family staying in Silverdale, Hamilton around that time, and grew up with their son Manuel who now calls himself Pin, short for Piniha or something like that. I think he even went so far as to say he was a Wanahi. To me sounds like he is a wannabe. I don't know what of his parents anymore but he still stays in Hamilton driving for Waste Management. Well I hope its a start.
