I am looking at my grandfathers side who is Michael Waiaka Clay, he has since passed on and unfortunately I do not know our whakapapa, is there anyone who is able to assist by providing any information. I have heard that he has links to whakatohea and tuhoe but am unsure how we link to these two iwi

i forgot to add there is a few good books around. Whakatohea of oportiki by A.C.Lyall, Ranginui Walker: struggle without end. if you type in whakatohea into the google web browser that will also bring up quite a bit of info there. hope this helps.

Hi Latisha has your dad done anything about your koro's land yet. If not the Maori Land Court will be a good place to start. I see that you live in Rotorua so try there. Say hello to your mum and dad for me.
