Kiaora Riki i dont have the persmission to give out any contact numbers at the moment but will talk to my kaumatua. Our iwi Maniapoto and Tuuhoe have veriouse links aye. My whanau are Maniapoto but we still have links to Tuuhoe, even though i am not aware of them sadly i always recall my kuia saying we were from Tuuhoe aswell. Do u know what part of Maniapoto your kuia came from and why she was givin? Was it around the time of the Orakua war in 1864? Tuuhoe aided Maniapoto with a war party here and lost many men maybe she went back with the ope taua returning to Te Urewera?
Kia Ora Jack mo tena Whakahoki
I dont have any dates For my Kuia nore do i kno what part Of Maniapoto she was from, all i have is her name and Matua It could of well been around tha Orakua War error.
My Kuia was givin to Ngai Tuhoe so that Tuhoe Wouldint go in and Whawhai mo te Whenua and this is some of tha Hidden Korero from our Whanau.
My kuia was a ment to be Rua Kenana'a 12th Wife
