Kia ora,

If you go to the whakapapa club basic search and put Waaka in the first name box and Tarawhata in the Last name box then click Create Searches then clock on the Search Google Link you will find results for that name and some of those may be the key for you finding the information you are looking for 🙂


Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
