takahi Watene or Watene Takahi
E te Iwi Whanui tena Koutou katoa. Kei te kimi ahau i te whakamaramatanga mo toku tupuna ko takahi watene no Tawera (kei Tuhoe pea). Mena kei te mohio etahi o koutou i te ingoa nei, te hapu, me te whanau, waea mai, post mai ranei ki a ahau.
He maha hoki kei toku taone no te tupuna nei kaore e mohio ko wai ratou i raro i te mana o tenei tupuna, no reira, kei kona koutou e whanau ma no te kainga o te tupuna nei, panuitia mai ki a au.I have discovered I am an uri of a one Takahi Watene, or Watene Takahi, from a hapu known as Tawera, perhaps in Tuhoe .
Please excuse my ignorance, but this is one of the few lines of my lineage I do not know of and I seek awhi , whakamarama about this person.
any assistance greatly appreciated as their is a huge whanau in the same boat on this matter
