Kia Ora

I am trying to trace my tipuna back to their respective iwi & hapu as I do not have their whakapapa nor do I know whom their parents, grandparents etc are.

I am a descendant of Te Teira Taumataherea & Ngakoere Herewini through their daughter - Ripoi Te Teira Taumataherea (But some sources say Te Ripoi).

All the information I know is that Ripoi (Who is my great great grandmother) is apparently of Ngati Maniapoto & Ngati Ranginui descent. She married into the Ormsby (Omipi) bloodline.

I would love to know their whakapapa and have their whakapapa that traces back towards the waka & would LOVE to know what their iwis & hapu are as well as what marae I belong to. Maunga, awa etc.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

S

Kia Ora Miss Herewini I may have some information regarding this
lineage.Do you know of a connection to Tumapuhia/Te Kiehe/
or Kiwi?. These 3 may help to make sense of both sides of your connection.Some stayed,some moved South after the eruption.
good luck with your journey

The Orurea is recorded as being the 1st Waka to venture into southern
waters.Descendents of Te Huruhurumanu and Te Potiki o Tautahi are
said to have descended from this Waka.
It is important to establish a Waka link and refer to it frequently. In
reference to the Southern Whakapapa,it is better to move around the
Island as You gain your knowledge.Hope this helps in some way.

Kia Ora

I am unsure or unaware all I know is that Ripoi is of Ngati Ranginui & Ngati Maniapoto descent so I am unsure if she had any connections to other tribes or wakas.

I know of a Ngati Ranginui kaumatua BUT I am trying to track down a Maniapoto kaumatua or someone with alot of knowledge of Ngati Maniapoto

Hope someone can help

Cheers kind regards

Kia Ora whanau, I hope this helps. there is a lot of information for ngati maniapoto people. I went to Te Hape and Waimiha in the King Country and also learnt my Te Arawa whakapapa from there and discovered one way or another we were all related. there is a website that you can look at or call the caretaker of Te hape marae who can help you trace back your whanau whakapapa. the website is http://www.tiroatehape.maori.nz/rereahu_marae.php. if you contact someone here they should be able to help you. the whanau here is the Tepu Takuira whanau. Hope this helps you, I so know how it feels when you don't know your whanau whakapapa....

kiaora igetkrunkent,

Ripoi is my great, great grandmother as well. What a big family. I am related through the Ormsby side. When I was little I saw a picture of Ripoi and she looked lovely and she had a moko.
Cheers, SP
