My grand parents were from Rangitukia.
Their names were Arapeta Ngatai and Matakina Arkena.
She died in the 1950's and he died in the mid 1970's.
I would like to know more about them and their Tupuna.
I know Arapeta Ngatai's father was Wiremu and his wifes name was Hene.
Matakina's mothers name was Mere Hauhau Nikora. Would really appreciate any info plz

There is also a Ngatai Connection in Tauranga from a great chief named Hori Ngatai also known as Taiaho.
