TE KANAWA, Tuhoro Te kanawa: (Ancestors, Whakapapa)
Kiaora whanau, i have been trying so very hard to trace my Grt grt grt grandfather Tuhoro Te Kanawa in my whakapapa, i understand that there are 4 Tekanawa of great importance. Tuhoro is my Te Kanawa line but have struggled to find anything leading back to the one and only TEKANAWA. it is of great importance that i find this line, as there is a void in my whakapapa by at least 3-5 generations. if anyone is able to guide me or correct me i would be most grateful. i know he signed the treaty, there is a short story with him in it also, he was an important Person and Chief, and was respected by and connected to the king of waikato, but i cannot find the connection from tupuna TeKanawa to him.
Te Rahuruake is his mother but i am so very lost.. can anyone help or guide me through?... much love and respect.
i also have the name Hakahaka... Tuhoro Hakahaka Tekanawa, though i have searched everywhere high and low still keep coming up blank. my tuhoro had a child to a woman named WAIATA or Paki Tipa, this child and my great great grandmother was born around 1850's and at her passing in 1937 was estimated to be around 78 yrs old. i guess if you take an average age for her father tuhoro being lets say 25-30 yrs... he would have had to be born 1810 give or take. and if he is the tuhoro who signed the treaty in kawhia, then this adds up? of the waikato, waitomo, otorohanga, Pirongia, Kawhia area. his wife Waiata went on to remarry and have more kids. tuhoro's daughter whakapapa's back to Ingoa on her mothers side, Yet i am completely lost in regaurds to TUHORO H TEKANAWA. please can someone shed light or guide me.... so lost!
Kia ora. The Te Kanawa that signed the treaty (at Manukau I think) was Te Kanawa Ikatu the war chief of the Waikato tribes (along with Te Wherowhero). This is well acknowledged. Tuhoro (another great chief of his day) was of Te Whareangaanga Te Kanawa line if I'm not mistaken and was therefore a Maniapoto.
A great book that will be of immense assistance with your Tuhoro line is 'Whareangaanga Te Kanawa' He Whakamarumaru Mo Te Whanau 1992 by Te Muri Turner. It has much of what you're looking for as far as Tuhoro's line goes. It might be difficult to obtain a copy but interloan should be able to track one down for you. Nga Mihi
