I agree with whakar, also, try & get to a hui or a tangi out at Pikirangi marae [Ngāti Pikiao]. Its past the airport on the right but dont go too fast or you'll miss it. Inside the whare tūpuna on the wall are lots of photos of the Ransfield tūpuna. You'll be 'blown away'. Out there is a great place to start. Matua John is a lovely humble person so give him a call. Good luck!
