Thank you very much, and please that would be so very much appreciated if you could please email through to me I would be so very much thankful for that. I am studying my marae in Te Karaka 26kms north of Gisborne, Ko Takipu Marae and this information regarding the whakapapa,we have to whakapapa to the marae that we study and we do whakapapa to that marae through the tipuna that I am searching, Puhaiterangi is the connection to this iwi and she was the sister to Apanui Ringamutu, so if you can email all that please, I will be so grateful.
Kia ora peeps
Thought Id share my understanding of the area names and general locale as much as I can from this korero.
-Uawa is on East Coast, it is Tolaga Bay
-Whare ponga is the name for the East Cape
-Whangaparaoa is an area northwest of Hicks Bay.
Also just to add, I was looking around and wondered if anyone could tell me if Iranui was Taua's father please. Kia ora.

kia edwards.jacqueline engari whareponga is the bay afta waipiro and whangaparaoa is cape runaway.
iranui was taua's mother.she was a daughter of tamateapokaiwhenua and his wife iwipupu.iwipupu was of ngati porou:
iwipupu = tamatea
iranui = hingangaroa
Tena koe Haati! I thought Whangaparaoa was the bay next to Cape Runaway, and Tihirau is Cape Runaway.
I am trying to trace 2 tipuna,Apanui WAIPAPA and Apanui RINGAMUTU they both come from Te Whanau-a-Apanui. Any help would be much appreciated.
To supplement the korero so far, Apanui Waipapa was actually killed at Uawa area by Kahukuranui, son of Hauiti. His children we bailed up in a pa in the same area but were allowed to escape by climbing out through the paepae hamuti and fleeing east. Eventually, they made it Maraenui where Turirangi was asked to protect them. When Kahukuranui caught them Turirangi fought him and killed him. As payment, Te Aotakaia gave his sister to him as his second wife. From that union was born Apanui Ringamutu and three other brothers. Turirangi had a first family and Puhaoterangi was from that whanau. One of the hapu from the back of Gisborne that comes off that whanau was/is Ngai Te Kete. Turirangi's iwi was Ngariki. Some years after he had married Rongomaihuatahi, she was at Omaio when a taua arrived. She hid in the bushes in case she was killed as a maroro kokoti waka but recognised her brother Te Aotakaia as the leader. She sent her son Apanui out to his uncle and followed him out too. The upshot of that was Te Aotakaia gave mana over the land from Potikirua in the east to Puketapu just east of Whitianga Bay where the Whanau a Tuwahiawa are. His father then gave him mana over the area from Puketapu to Tunapahore wher the Whanau a Haraawaka are. That covers the whole of the rohe of Te Whanau a Apanui. Apanui Mutu had four wives, Kahukuramihiata, Te Whaaki, Kohepare and Kiritapu and from them had a whole lot of kids. He was known by various names and the name Apanui Ringamutu relates to him having his thumb cut off as payment for being given the art of carving by his tipuna Hingangaroa. I hope this helps.
