MOKA-POU WHANAU-HELP WITH WHAKAPAPA
Kia Ora Kaye Kaye,
My name is lee I am a daughter of bill and george moka is one of my uncles, but I want to know which one you talking about witchie or kula. Uncle witchie use to live in kihikihi Te Awamutu with dad(bill) and vae.
hey if you know anything about the moka whakapapa would appreciate the info.
Kia Ora Lee,
Yep Witchy is the one, and Bill and Vae from Kihikihi, I used to live in Te Kawa where i met Witchy (when he used to be with my old baby sitter Peggy Heke) Bill and Vae from the Kohanga there (now gone). I am a couple of years older than Nigel who I used to go school with at Te Awamutu College. As for whakapapa Kare arohamai! I only know the whanau that you speak of not there whakapapa but could you possibly tell me where Omanaia is some one reading this may have whanau there and could help you out!
My name is Lee Moka, I am Uncle Witchie's niece, we know that uncle was whangai but my understanding that he was my grandfathers moko from my poppas first family. Is Waata Moka your grandfather too. It will be good if I can share whakapapa with you I can go back to 3 generations (moka side thats including poppa), but our pickering side I can go back to rahiri if you are interested.
As for Uncle Witchie he was bought up with my dad and uncles and even though hes really my cousin hes been our uncle. He got married down te awamutu but is no longer with his wife. He has a new baby with his new misses (if you call 3 years new). I would tell my uncle about you and hopefully he might get in contact, it might do him some good.
I hope we can keep in contact
Lee (I am bills oldest daughter)(William from second family)
Kia Ora Cuz, Your dad is my mum's first cousin on the Pickering side from Rawene. Would be good to catch up sometime soon, as I too am looking for the Pickering whakapapa. I know that Uncle Royal Pickering is still alive and I am hoping to catch up with him very soon in the near future. Send us buzz at firstname.lastname@example.org
