PORORUA Waana Kahukopeka TURAHIA MARAE
Kia Ora I am seeking to know my whakapapa to my Great great grandmother Waana Kahukopeka Pororua and have been told her photograph is at Turahia Marae(between Te Aroha and Paeroa)Is there someone from this area who can tell me if this is so?
I have also been told Waana was closely related to the Leader Rewi Maniapoto but my searching has not discovered the family connection, Any suggestions as to this?
