I hope someone can help me shed some light on the details i have been given in regards to my whakapapa. Pirihira is my grandmother and her mother is Te Kahu Nukunuku.
I am after confirmation regarding Hapu and clarification regarding the connection to maraes and any stories would be welcome.
I am currently an arts student in Waikato and have also started learning Te Reo, I am curious about this part of my heritage but not really too sure where to start.
Thank you
