I've come to a dead end.
Looking for any information on Toko Rua (son of Rua Kenana), who I believe is my partners great great grandfather.I am trying to track my partners whakapapa so any information on Toko Rua, Rua Kenana, or any of his wives would be really appreciated.

Tena koe Geenie,
nga mihi. My Great Grandmother, Tawhakirangi, was married to Toko. Toko's mother was Pinepine of the Ngati Kuri, Ngati Te Paenga people of Ruatahuna.
I am of the Te Kaawa whanau of Ruatahuna - Toko Rua is a Great Grandfather to me.
The book 'Mihaia' written by Judith Binney would also be a good resource for you to research.
Otherwise make contact, I'll be glad to help

Kia Ora Tuahine,

The person to make contct with is Tama Nikora. He is a man on a mission with whakapapa and as you might be aware, the Raupatu claims have just completed in Tuhoe. Any information pertaining to Rua Kenana whakapapa you will find inside of the claimants documents.

Kia Ora

Tena koe Midnight,

Tautoko tou korero, however, my Kuia, Tawhakirangi, who was married to Toko never referred to him as Tokopounamu. NO there was only one Toko who was the second eldest son of Rua Kenana & Pinepine. E hoa I think you had better return home to Matahi. Our sister here is doing a wonderful job researching about our Tipuna Toko. Maybe a trip to Maungapohatu & Ruatahuna would also be helpful to broaden your horizon about Toko e hoa. Nga mihi.

Mauri Ora!!!!

Thank you all so much for all your help and all your posts, it is much appreciated.
Last yeat I read a book about Rua Kenana written by Peter Webster, The book is called Rua and the Maori Millenium. It is very enlightening, and the author actually met Rua's last wife before she passed, it is an awesome book if you ever come across it.
