Kia ora, Ko Wiremu Toma tooku ingoa he uri ahau no Tauranga Moana tuuturu engari he hononga hoki ooku ki Parawera. Ko te ingoa whanau e hono ai au ki reira ko te whaanau Te Wao ki taaku e mohio. Ko Anita (P-nut) Te Wao te maama o taku paapa. Koira noiho nga koorero e mohio nei au, kei te kimi au i aku hononga ki te waka o Tainui.
Kia ora, my name is Wiremu and im a descendant of Mauao maunga originally but do have whakapapa links to Parawera. The family name that ties me back there i believe is the Te Wao whanau. Anita (P-nut) Te Wao is my fathers mother and that is all the information i know. Im on the search for our links that tie us back to the waka of Tainui most importantly to Parawera. Mihi kau noa
