HEIHEI/HATURINI Haere Mai te whanau
Tuatahi...this thread is replacing one that this website seems to have deleted, I'm very disappointed, there was valuable info for many but nevermind.
Now Te Karere!!
Ko Melissa Rasmussen taku ingoa
I am the Eldest grand-daughter of TE RAHORA LORAINNE HATURINI/HEIHEI. She was known as Ora to many.For those who don't know she passed in May at 67 years of age and lies at Manukau Memorial Gardens in Auckland.
For years I have put the beacon out to her whanaunga to come in and say Hi.Unfortunately I don't know much about our Tuhoetanga, but I am on a huge mission to go home to Nanas home fires in TE WAIMANA, RUATOKI. We have never been home, and I believe it is our duty to our children to start that path before it's gone. If you have just started your journey, AWESOME, record the information, be consistent and clear with your questions, and enjoy the feeling of re-connecting with your roots.
Hopefully the whanau such as Terri-anne Haturini who were on here before get back in touch, you had valuable information Cousin, hope to hear from you soon.
BASIC INFORMATION about our family.
My Nana: ORA TE RAHORA LORAINNE HATURINI/HEIHEI

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
Looking at my original post I realise I need to put more about Nana Ora, so that other whanau are able to connect, the replies from poutokomanawa are very helpful, thank you.
Ora's sisters are Janey, Rosie, Mereana,...and I think there are others. Ora also spoke of Raroa. Ora's parents were Taurua Hei hei (Haturini), & Ripeka Collier.
