Hamiora, Piripi Taiata

Kia Ora Whanau,

I am trying to research my sons whanau, as his father is no longer around. I have the pakeha side, but am a bit stuck with the Maori line. I have found he is related to Piripi Hamiora (Phillip Samuel), a Maori evangelist from Rukumoana Marae. I believe that is Ngati Haua, but am not sure. He married a lady called Papuwaiora, and then later married her niece Kaho, but I am unable to find any information regarding either of the marriages. I was wondering if anyone else was researching the Hardings, Hamioras, or Te Wheki's from the Waikato/Hauraki area?
