Kia Ora;

I am looking for information on my ancestor;

Te Ikairaua (Te Ikaraua), the daughter of Te Ati Awa chief Te Whati

I received a reply before the server crash, so if that person can send it again, then I should be grateful.

What I am looking for is her burial site and a photo , so I can pay my respects.

thanks & regards
