Kia Ora Whanau,
My connection to the Moka whanau is through the Pickering/Eruera Hopewai line. I am still researching the whakapapa and as soon as I get it all together I will keep you all posted. My grandfather was Tau Pickering, my grandmother ws Harata Eruera-Hopewai. Keep researching and together we will find one another. The only one of the Moka whanau I really knew was Uncle Jimmy and aunty Isobel. There kids and us all grew up together in Rawene. My grandparents use to work at the Rawene hospital, and they lived around the bottom road next to uncle Hughie Williams. Look forward to catching up with you all.
