TAUMATAHERA, Te Teira / HEREWINI, Ngakoere
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.
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.
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....
