Kia ora koutou,
I am looking for any information concerning Huhana Karaka Paerataborn Muriwhenua,married Himiona Rapana Weko.

They had 3 daughters I know of for sure,'Ngarupa','Mere(Pohe)' and my grandmother,"Maata(Tuti)'.This whanau left Muriwhenua in the early 1900's and settled at the bottom of the Wharerata's,at Morere,under the shadow of Moumoukai te maunga.By 1945 they had all passed away and laid to rest in Nuhaka,never to return to Taitokorau.Ngarupa had a son named Iraia Te Hanene Matairangi Rore(Nika)i mate 1965.Mere also survived by her only son Noema Potatau i mate 1968ish,and Maata leaving 4 issue,Te Tini Robin(born Kaitaia)i mate 1995.My mum, Mei Paerata Coleman(born Morere),her brother, Wipani Matairangi Rore and youngest Te Ata Lorraine Matairangi Rore(Whangai to her fathers whanau).I'm trying to re- connect my whanau and learn more about my people and the kind of people they were."ka mau te wehi" what i learn so far.Kareponia te marae,and I see my whanau names in Komako Urupa.THe people there don't know us and feel distrust,heard a man say"every one wants to jump in on his whakapapa"if I could choose I'd pick an easier 1, or at least someone more affluent.,with land2, fore-shore.

Kia ora Ngarupa,

Don't let people like that man put you off. If you are on the whakapapa you can not jump on it as you are already there

You could try www.familysearch.org for more information about the names, or try contacting the Iwi Authority for that area - Ngati Kahu for more information. The links for their sites will be under Tai Tokerau in the links section here at maori.org.nz

The book [url="http://www.fishpond.co.nz/product_info.php?ref=9&products_id=560616&affiliate_banner_id=1"]The Tribes of Muriwhenua: Their Origins and Stories[/url] is also a great read, written in English and Maori with alot of pounamu in it.

Kia kaha and good luck

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

Tena Koe:

I agree, dont take any notice of peoples rude comment not worth, but what is is you have made a connection to another branch of the Paerata Whanau: Check it out:

Hitiri Paerata: Mokai marae Tuwharetoa, These Paerata Whanau originate from Kapiti Island, eventually settle in the Tuwharetoa rohe. There is a large Picture of him hanging in the Museum at Wanganui, next to my other tupuna Major Kemp, perhaps the Historian attched to the Tuwharetoa Maori Trust Borad maybe able to help.

Good luck and go hard, we dont want ngaro to get you too!

Kia ora ano,

Make sure you are in the Whakapapa club then click Full Search and put in paerata - there are quite a few listings and some may be able to help you.

Good Luck

Really enjoyed that comment it made me smile.Dont forget "you cant pick your family but you can pick your friends"
Whakapapa doesnt ever belong just to one individual its a living legacy for yesterday, today and tommorrows generations, forgive the man his ignorance and never lose that sense of humour it will enrich your life with more than the promise of sharing a teaspoon of land with thousands of others, meanwhile dont be afraid to pursue what is rightfully yours -your reconnection with your tupuna through learning your whakapapa

Kia Ora
I agree, I've had that same problem. It just made me try harder. The Name PAERATA is in my whakapapa too I'm not too sure of my connection either. Is the name AWATEA PAERATA familier to anyone? Please Help!

Tëna koutou. Ngä mihi nui ki te Runga Rawa me te Whänau o Mäori.org/whakapapa. I'm Nani & whakapapa has been my interest since I was little. I have details of my own whakapapa & if there is anything I can do to help others I will.
I was given the ok by my hubby's extended whänau to search for details of their tüpuna [who came out from Scotland & married a woman connected with Te Whänau a Pütaanga], for a family reunion a year ago.
I would like to acknowledge hearty nati for assistance he gave to jessa [StaleDateShorty}. The questions she asked of Te Ao Ngäti Porou were likened to a university or a wänanga assignment. Bless you for the answers you gave nati. Ma te Atua e mänaaki e tiaki tätou katoa. Haumie hui e taiki e!
