Our whanau have managed to trace the birth certificate of my koro Hoko Karatau. He was born in Parihaka to Heremete Karatau and Tomiti Pauora.
We cannot go any further back then that.
There is also a gap between Parihaka and Turakina. It is possible Hoko was a whangai. Can anyone offer information?
