Kia Ora Koutou. I am looking for info about the siblings of Hira TAI MOHI(Ruatahuna) and his wife,Te Whenua MATIU(Te Waimana) I am of the belief they were from these places. They had a son, Koroua who took the surname TAI and married Tereita TE AWAHOU. They had a son Te Whiu or affectionately known as Ike or Foxy(my father) who married Margaret Marino (my mother).
If this following information allows anyone to remember siblings of my Greats, anything will be so much appreciated !!!
In 1988 during Xmas a Tai/Tamehana reunion was held at Waioweka Marae, Opotiki. There were alot of whanau from Ruatahuna there and because I was the only one pregnant at the time( or with the next generation) myself and one other uri had the privilege of cutting the cake. I believe our reunions are every 2 years and the next one after that was at Mourea( correct me if I am wrong) so hope this info sparks someones memory.
Kia Ora
