MONGA, Tepau / HEKE or HIKA?
Hi, I am researching Tepau Monga from Rarotonga. I understand his father Monga married a Maori woman but can find no further details. The Maori woman is said to have been Nga Puhi. She is said to have been a relation of Hone Heke but I am wondering if it is in fact Hongi Hika? This has only been carried down verbally and nobody knows her name. She married Monga and returned to Rarotonga with him. I would love any info on her or clues about how to find this info.
Hi, I have managed to find a website that might help you answer your question.
Good Luck!! 🙂
