This is my grandmothers name. I am trying to make sense of a family tree I have been given.
There are two Tribe names(Im not sure if that is what they are called)I am unsure of which one we belong too.
Ngati Haua & Ngati Hau Nui A Paparangi

I have no idea where ti begin an have really struggled to get info here in Australia can anyone help??

I think her parents where Wikirima Tuhiariki & Wikura Tanoa but I am unsure if I am reading this correctly.

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be fantastic.

Hi Mistymarie,

My sons great grandmother is Wikura Tuhi Ariki(Kataka), she married Tonga Tanoa. If this is the same family I will ask him for the whakapapa for you. Can you send me a line and let me know?
