Kia ora Elsie,

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put Potiki in the Last Name search box, set the country to New Zealand, you will be able to find a record Ihaia Potiki as well as others by the same name. check them all out.

Also, be aware taht not all info at that site is correct, but it is a great place to start.

Good luck!

Kia ora ano,

Try putting "Ihaia Potiki" with the "" in the google search and you will find a couple more pages with your Tupuna name in them

You could also try the Ngai Tahu Whakapapa Unit.

He mihi nui tenei ki a koe e ChrisM,
In my research I discovered an article called the "Blue Book" and in this book there are Kaumatua dating back to 1848,I have since applied for registration forms and a copy of this book,to be sent to me.Apparently it goes something like this, if you can tatai,(blood ties)back to any of these Kaumatua/Kuia which we can,then we register,and bob's your uncle.
In the meantime Ill certainly keep in touch and let you know how it's all going.Oh yeah my G/G/G/G/G/Grandfather was Wiremu Nera Potiki of the Ngatiteruahikihiki Ki Otakau iwi.Call you later.
Noho ora mai koe me to whanau.
Na Elsie Komene.

To ChrisM as for trying to contact Whakapapa Ngai Tahu just pick up the phone and dial 08005248248 free of charge and ask for the whakapapa unit. They are only to pleased to help whanau.
Elsie is correct also in that in 1848 a census was taken in the south island of all maori living at the time. This census is the basis of Ngai Tahu wakapapa in that to register with Ngai Tahu you must be able to trace your whakapapa back to at least on of these Kaumatua listed in the Ngai Tahu Kaumatua Alive in 1848 or more commonly referred to as the "Blue Book"

In regards to the information in the blue book each kuamatua in it has a list number in the case of Ihaia Potiki his file number was 32 therefore if you get in touch with the whakapapa people at Ngai Tahu and ask them if you can get a copy of File 32 it shows some of the whakapapa cant say how much all depends on the info they have on hand but it should be of a lot of help
Ive done much research of my whanau thru the ngai tahu files

other names associated with Ihaia Potiki in the Blue book are Hapa Tahuna and Henare Huatakitaki
Hope these names help
