Te Hamaiwaho (Ngai Tahu ki Wairarapa)
Hello my name is John. I am looking for information on tupuna Te Kaninamu Hamaiwaho who married Ngapine Waaka who has daughter Raukura Haratiera who has daughter Amiria Haratiera who has numerous children including Atareta Maremare Eria.
Te Hamaiwaho lived in the Wairarapa and was Ngai Tahu (Wairarapa).
I am interested to find out more about Te Hamaiwaho and his whakapapa.
Please help me if you can. Nga mihi.
Firstly check out the Maori Naming Conventions if you have not done so already. As you have not given and idea of dates for Te Kaninamu Hamaiwaho then maybe his father is Hamaiwaho (and I have also seen it written Hamai Waho) so that gives you another option to search. Another way, is search for the surname Kaninamu (without the TE) and then follow some of the older ones back - it may lead you back to Te Kaninamu Hamaiwaho then further back.
If you know siblings of Te Kaninamu Hamaiwaho then search for them as you may find info on their parents which will help you work back.
Google Search has results about some land dealings, but no whakapapa.
Good luck 🙂
Nau te raurau,
