KARENA, Apahun Wikitoria
Kia ora Koutou
I am looking for whanau who have connections to the Karena whanau of Taranaki. My grandmother is Apahuna Wikitoria Piwari (nee Karena). Her father is Raniera Karena and her mother is Ngarongo Kahau (Kahou) who were both from Puketapu Hapu of Te Atiawa.
My grandmother had lots of brothers and sisters (about 12 in the whanau), but Im wanting to know more about the Puketapu Hapu. I have searched the net extensively but seem to come up blank about who they were. If you can add to this panui, he pai rawa atu, any information would be great.
Nau mai haere mai whanau ma
Mokopuna o Edward raua ko Apahuna Piwari (nee Karena)
