Kia ora i'm a nicholson from levin, otaki ways and also Hawkes Bay. The winiata whanau in Hawkes Bay came from our whanau and pretty much the same as the one's in Otaki. If your searching for the same whanau as the one's in Otaki you just contact the Maori University that's there because it's Professor Winiata that run's it.

My GG,koro (whom in his own right was a chief to us) from Taihape had a sister, but she didn't marry a pakeha. The Winiata whanau in Raetihi are from Taihape also and there is also another whanau from Raetihi who went under their father's christen name (Winiata) and they are whanau to my mother's side. Then the Winiata whanau in Levin are whanau to my children's father, tipuna (Winiata Pataka). And then some of the whanau in Kahungunu originate from my GGKoro'brothers and sister, some of the whanau to name such as the: Rarere, Keepa, Rapana, Ataria,Karitiana, Tanguru,just to name a very few. Then I know there a some up north but I don't know about them. Somebody else may want to add on from here.

My GGG Koro, Winiata Kakahi from the kuia Hinekoropango of Ngati Tara & Ngati Tamakana also was a chief, we are the whanau you speak of from Raetihi, who went under our GGG Koro's first name Winiata. Kia ora Winiata of Taihape, Kia ora Winiata Pataka of Levin/Otaki.

At the moment we are involved in land issues with the crown and seek the return of our lands and the right to care for our mountain, Mt Ruapehu.

The families of Winiata Kakahi in Raetihi have intermarried throughout the area.

'Funnymoney', you mention Gray, it may be off the track but there are Grey/Kerei families in the area. Maybe just a little for info may help.

No I'm not from Auntie Martha & Nita's dad Kauhanga but from Kauhanga's older sister Hinemata. Hinemata had two boys, and i'm from the younger boy Moke (Smoke).

You may be looking for Wynyard. There was a tupuna named Te Whaaro Winiata who married a Peeti Mokopuna who was a Hamutana, and there are many whanau that come off that line. her father was a Scotsman, apparently.

Kia ora Sienna
the tupuna (Winiata Te Whaaro) you have mention are the ones that I am referring to in my panui above, they are the parents of my grandfather.
I know some of the Hamilton Whanau living here in Whanganui-A-Tara, and met many more at the Tuaropaki Hui back in March 06, it was neat, first time been there and enjoyed every minute.
