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

Tena koe,
Tangaroa Whakamanamana *Ngapuhi* was a tupuna 7 generations before Ngatitaha -born 1808.
Related tupuna? or coincident?

Kia ora Haututaua,

Are you referring to Tangaroa Whakamanamana? He is also my tupuna and I am interested in your korero regarding his pepeha.

Kia ora

kia ora all i have read so far is Horouta and takitimu were the first waka to come upon aotearoa, they settled in pioverty bay and moved inland. perhaps get a list of the tane and wahine who were on the waka. you may find it in Rongowhakaata. it is the main whakapapa from gisbourne.

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.
