One more thing i forgot to mention, My grand mothers name is Whataakai they also had a brother called Johnny, and one of his sons live in Hicks Bay who is a pricipal at the school, another one of his sons live in Kawerau whos son also lives in Hicks Bay, a lot of Papa Johnny's children have something to do with teaching or education. On the Poutu's side, well one of Heni Poutu's brothers is Pine Poutu. One of his sons was Putu Poutu who married Huitau. Papa Putu is not alive now but nanny Suey(Huitau) is still alive and pumping. Majority of her children live here and so do the majority of her grandchildren. I suggest you to come and stay in Hicks Bay for a couple of days and you will find out A LOT. You will also be able to get all the whakapapa written down on paper and you will be able to find long lost relations. Well i think i have said enough for now. I have a lot to say and a lot of questions to answer. But i will ask my father because he knows all the whakapapa. He even knows all my mothers side. I think my father would be pleased to see you, a long lost relation. His name is Honore by the way in case you want to search or ask for him. He will tell you everything. Ok im definitly finished now.
