Kia Ora

I am in search of my whakapapa which connects me to the Maori Royalty. I am doing my whakapapa for my whanau at the moment & I am not doing this to skite about my connections nor show of my bloodline. I am simply doing the whakapapa for my whanau so we know where we come from as alot of us don't know.

I have been told that both my grandparents are connected to the Kingitanga. My nanna is from Ngati Tahinga and has some connection to Turangawaewae. So does my grandfather but his bloodline is a bit of a mystery & I am trying to find someone who can help me find his lineage.

My koro whakapapa (from what I can find) goes like this

Te Pakaru Wahanui/Wakanui Karora = Unknown

Timi Heemi Te Pakaru = Erena Irihapeti Paretuhonoa Waaka (Ellen Elizabeth Walker)

Hori George Heemi Te Pakaru = Tui Tutanumia Papanumu Whaiapu (My grandparents)

Is there anyone I can go to from Turangawaewae to see about my whakapapa. Ive been told by my mum to go back there but i dont know who to see as Ive never been there before.

Kind regards

Auctual I think the Waaka Whanau are the Master Carvers at Turangawaewae,so if you can contact the office or Mamae, you will find your answers,links to Te Kingitanga.
