Kia ora,

If you go to the Ngati Makino website [url] http://www.ngatimakino.co.nz/[/url] and click on Ngati Makino Iwi > Background you will see that there is a Tawa who was involved with the Wai 334.

Maybe if you make contact with the people at that site, you will be able get the answers that you are looking for!

Good Luck! 😀

Nau te raurau,

Together we will get there!
