MAITUA: looking for my father and family

Hi my name is Mahuika and i am 17 years old. i was born on the 10th of june 1988 in perth western australia. my father is listed on my birth certificate as being TANA MAITUA. from the little information i have gathered from my mother he is maori/samoan born in Vailima Samoa but raised in Auckland NZ. I have had no contact with him since i was 3 months old and as i am nearing my 18th birthday i have decided i would like to find him and learn about my heritage. My mother refuses to give me any information about him or the Maitua family. if anyone can gelp me with any information no matter how small it would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou.

Kia ora mahuika,

Although I can not help you as I could not find the surname Maitua in the NZ whitepages or the familysearch site, I just want to say good luck and keep trying!

There is a Maitua playing for the Bulldogs - maybe that is an avenue you should try
