Has anyone got any Whakapapa on Te Hau? Any information would be greatly appreciated.(Come on Funky, do your stuff)
Hey Cuz, Busy az day 2day.
Just seen your post..
Question..? What we looking for exactly? a little more specific please?
Which direction we heading in?
A Start and an End would be good.
Also I don't have TAKANGAROA.
I can't say whether I've come across this tupuna yet.
I have .. TE HAU=TAURU-TU is this the same TE HAU you are referring
to? Parents of TAURU-MOKO?
Perhaps TAKANGAROA aka TAURU-TU?
OR...TAKANGAROA another wife.
Who knows? NOT me!?
Yep..Your Turn Cuz
So.. Had a quick check to figure where u comin' from.
TE HAU=TAKANGAROA in your whakapapa? right?
Sorry cuz the only thing I have is to do with
above TAKAKURU is TE HOKOKEHA as parent M or F?
I do know though that they shortened their names somewhat so whereever you find TAKA and similarities in lines that MAY be yours.
If I come across something I'll post for ya.
Hope that helps cuz.
Arohanui 2 U & Whanau.
Kia Ora Cuz,
Thanks for that. You don't Know how much that helps. I have been talking to a Whanau member and she asked me if I knew what Hoko Keha meant and added no explanation. I dug around, asked about a million Maori in town and what we came up with was selling Pakeha. The Whanau member finally spilt the beans and Hoko Keha is the name of our Hapu (shame on me)
The Whakapapa I have from the Nga Mo Tea Tea is
It shows that Mawete sister was Takakuru, now the way it's written I had a bit of trouble at first so now I'm thinking that Mawete and Takakuru didn't share the same father unless Te Hau and Te Hoko Keha are one and the same.By the way the name Hoko Keha was adopted when the Pakeha sold our Tipuna Keha berries and said they were musket balls.Sucked in again. I wonder what happened when they went to use them? Did our Tipuna invent jam? I'll keep you posted.

Always Good to look on the bright side of it. right?
So Funny.. Although the whole purpose for giving these weapons to our people in the first place, was so that we could wipe Each Other out.
Saving them from clearing the land of the natives.
Same tactics used World Wide.
We can be grateful that these weapons were rendered useless when it came to Uncle Hongi Hika on his power hungry "Wanna RULE the world" episode.
Imagine him in Parliament! LOL!
Running against Brash!!LOL!
I'm still VERY well aware of the posibilities that may have had us colonised by the FRENCH,DUTCH,AUSSIES,AMERICANS.etc...
Kia Ora Steve
My father was Tautahi Eruera Rikihana and his grandfather was Wiremu Rikihana.
I understood my grandfather Eruera Rikihana had a brother Timoti. So I have been very interested to read that there is also a sister Maraea. My father never spoke of her or mentioned her at all. So I would be very interested to find out more information about her.
I have been looking at information about my tupuna and found this website and had to register and send this query off straight away.
Ka kite ano
Kia ora Steve
Well thanks for that. I am sending this page off to my sister who is doing some research at present. She has met up with another relative of ours from Timoti and they are busy looking for information about our whanau in the north. Particularly marae hapu and whakapapa so she would be very interested to correspond with you. I think I remember speaking with a relative of yous some years ago at uncle Marsh's tangi at Mitimiti. He was very ill though with cancer.
I brought that book Karanga Hokianga for my Dad before he died and he loved reading it. Said he couldnt talk Maori but he could sure read the book to me though....lol
Look forward to hearing more from you
Kia Ora Hera,
Good to hear from you. I'm looking forward to hear from your sister and of course I'll help yous anyway I can. I have your Whakapapa to Kupe
(Matawhaorua Waka), Nukutawhiti (Ngatokimatawhaorua Waka), Ruanui (Maamari Waka) Puhi (Mataatua Waka) Tumoana (Tinana Waka) and Pohurihanga (Kurahaupo Waka).
kia ora copycatdog
which waka is toroa
MATAATUA is the recognised Waka of the district.
But in "The Tribes of Muriwhenua:their origins and stories by Dorothy Urlich Cloher.
page 15 it tables MIRUPOKAI as captain?
Which is new to me because I have always been lead to believe that MIRUPOKAI was Captain of RUAKARAMEA.
I think Ms Urlich Cloher has her info wrong here.
Because MOEHURI was MIRUPOKAI's wife.
No Worries we'll put it all straight in the end..aye whanau!?
