MANUKAU Henare Ngati Whatua Died 1888
Kia Ora Annie,
I know the Manukau whanau are predominant in Pouto, Kaipara if that helps.
The original marae was Riripo Marae but was taken away in a storm in the 70's, however, Waikaretu is the marae in Pouto now, perhaps someone there could help you. The mailing address for the marae is Waikaretu Marae - Pouto Rd, Pouto, Kaipara.
Hope that helps
good luck with your search

Thanks very much, I will follow that through. I was also told that there is a another Marae that links to Manukau whanau, in Tenopai, not sure of spelling but think it is Kirahipi??? Does this ring any bells?
Yes my Father was related to the Manukau's from Arapaoa.I do have a photo of the Ngati Whatua Ratana band taken approx:1935-1940.With the Manukau's Tamihana's Matiu's and others but they were all related.My father and his cousin were able to put names too the faces before they passed on.I can tell you that the whanau in Wanganui are hoping to have a Matiu reunion hopefully in Arapaoa but I am not certain on the details.I do know there is a very good book out you might want to read it,as it is about our whakapapa.Will have to get back to you on the title of the book.
Kia Ora Annie
