Tena koe jigger

You may or may not already know this, but here is a little bit of information for you.

Bishop Wiremu Netana Panapa, known affectionately as Barney, was the second bishop of Aotearoa. He was born in Ahikiwi, north of Dargaville, on 7 June 1898. Panapa’s grandfather, Panapa Hohapata, of Ngati Ruanui, was captured during one of Ngati Whatua’s battles in Taranaki in the late 1820s and was taken to Northland. He later married Ngatowai Teao Mamaku of Ngati Whatua and settled at Ahikiwi; Ngatowai was also called Ripeka Hohapata. Their son, Netana Te Kopa Panapa, a farmer, married Ngapeka Mereana (Marion) Maihi of Te Rarawa and Ngati Kahu; they had 12 children. Wiremu, their fourth child, was baptised as Wiremu Pepene; he later changed his name to Wiremu Netana, after his father. Ngapeka, also known as Mereana, worked assiduously to protect Maori customs and traditions but was also active in the church.

Panapa Hohapata was of Ngati Hinga hapu, Ati Awa. The marae at Ahikiwi was gazetted as a marae for Ngati Hinga to provide a place for the people who had come from the area and settled in the north. It is said that the chief Parore was the one who brought Panapa to the north from Taranaki because he(Panapa) was a good marksman with a rifle. Hongi Hika was shot by Maratea, who in turn was shot by Panapa.

The last number I have for him is 094398261 if that does not work you can try Charie Parkinson on 094398501 he will know how to get a hole of Maiti.
I hope this will help you

Kia ora,

You have an Aunty called Marie Panpapa (Noo Taranaki) at the head office of Te Wananga o Aotearoa as the Cultural Advisor. Her husband, Rewi Panapa only recently passed away and his brother Wayne is pretty high up in the police force. But they all grew up here in Kihikihi-Te Awamutu, Ngati Maniapoto. You could just ring the 0800 355 553 number and ask for Aunty Ma, they'll know who you're talking about as both of them were here from the beginning of the Wananga. Their father was Bishop Panapa. They're wonderful people and are all relatively still living in this area. Hope that helps you to get to know some of your whanau.
