does anyone know these ancestors of mine?
*PIRIHIRA KONEKONE of TE AITANGA-A-MAHAKI tribe.
*RAHARUHI RUKUPO of NGATI KAIPOHO tribe.
*RIRIA MAUARANUI of TE WHANAU-A-KAU tribe.
*KEITA KAIKERI of RONGOWHAKATA tribe.
*MAORA PANI of RONGOWHAKATA tribe.
Any information would halp me greatly in putting together my family history.
If your looking for Raharuhi Rukupo your best to get in touch with someone from the coast, Gisbourne to be exact, I suggest you get in touch with the Runanga o Ngati Porou and see if they can help you, most of your ancestors are from strong lineage and they are also well known through out the coast Raharuhi Rukupo was the first carver to use with steel chisels on a meeting house in Aotearoa
