Looking for my great grand mother, her name is Kataraina Makene Kere. She was married to Te Waru/Hauhau Papa. The korero goes that she was taken from Waikato and her father or grandfather was
Te Whero Whero, the Maori King. She was born around 1864 and settled in Mangataipa. So if anyone knows of this person or her whanau please drop me a line or if you know of a different story to this korero, don't be shy, just tell me your version and if you have any photo's of her or her whanau, I will love to see them.

Kia ora Lil,

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put Makene in the Last Name box and set the country to New Zealand then hit the search, you will get quite a few results.

On the results page you will see the the right IGI/Southwest Pacific - over 23 so click this.

Scroll down to entry number 88 and 90 - this may be the person you are looking for. Also, have a look at some of the others there as they are some born in Mangataipa so they may be whanau also.

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!

Thankyou for your reply, I have been to that site and it was really helpful but I'm looking for a story that was told to me and to see if it is true or not, if the story is true, I'm trying to find out how she or (her mother) actually ended up in Mangataipa or around those parts.
Anyway, thankyou for input.

Kia ora ano Lil I spoke with my mum and she dosen't recall that name... I will ask an older sister as well she might know. If you contact radio Tautoko at Mangamuka, Cyril, their station Manager maybe able to help you as well...I think he may know the Tainui connection.
No reira Kia kaha tonu koe.
