Kia Ora koutou. I am trying to find my fathers connection to Te Arawa whanau. His name is Mac Rangiawha his father is Taotao Te Putu (Jim) Kahu and his father is Kahukoti Rangiawha. Some other names are Rangiawha Wikiriwhi or Wikiriwhi Potene or Tamati Potene.

Much appreciated for any help:)

I'm told Potene Rangiawha of Rotorua came to Waikato with a Methodist minister before the Waikato land war in 1860. He met Mere Korama of Ngati Kahuone, Makomako here in Waikato and had 2 sons to her, named Tamati Potene and Wikiriwhi Rangiawha. Potene died fighting at Otaku. I assume you know your Waikato side and seek your Te Arawa uplines

I see that your elders are listed with Ngati Whakaue, ie http://www.ngatiwhakaue.iwi.nz/register/documents/NWTL%20unclaimed%20dividends%20at%2022%20March%202012%20-%20P-T.pdf
