Kia ora Ko Damita Teepa toku ingoa Ihaka Whaanga is my grt grt grt grandfather as well, through his son Ihaka Maihi Whaanga, I too have searched for any info on this whanau for a good 4/5 years, unfortunately all the info that I have is hard copy only but I am very willing to share the info with anyone that is searching. I know exaclty how hard, time consuming and sometimes discouraging it can be to look for this info.If you are able to email me and maybe we could set up some way of you recieving all the information that I have. E mail me at ngatohuariaritanga@hotmail.com.nz. Until then keep on searching it really is worth it in the end.
Naku noa Damita

Kia Ora Stephz. I have a sort of oval picture with Ihaka Whaanga in the middle of it. I am lead to believe that 2 of my tupuna are also in the picture but I have been unable to connect them to Ihaka. I do not know where the original picture is but have been told its in a Marae somewhere. If you email me an address I can send you a copy of the picture, sry but its not a very good copy, but may be some help to you.

Kia Ora Lynda,
I was just wondering if the picture you are talking about is the same one in the book Maori in Focus, William Main, pg 24.

Kia Ora Purerehua, tino pai, you are so right about the picture in the book you mentioned, do you happen to know who all the other people are in that same picture.
