An Ancient Iwi
Kia Ora Hotutaua
This is a long time ago ne?
Maybe you could look at events that may have happened like the warfare or landing of other waka and any ties made through marriage that could have changed their position from where they were to where they are aka mmigration on foot.
Might pay to look at a collection of whakapapa from that area and see what you come up with.
I hope this was helpful
Kia ora Hotutaua,
The Tangaroa Tupo I Know was from Ruanui II, His Brothers we're
Tarauaua, Koromaiterangi, Tuwhenuaroa they we're Ngati Ruanui,
I heard Their Hapu's we're Te Tawhiu & Patutoka,
As regards Tangaroa i te Whakamanamana, i think he was the tuakana to Rahiri.
We can't live on love and pipi's alone.
