Ko te tuatahi ka mihi au ki nga whanaungatanga kei waenganui i a taua. Ka mohio ahau wetahi o nga ingoa ka mea mai koe. Ka hoki toku maumahara ki etahi o woku matua tupuna kua mene ki te po.Ko te Wairukuruku, ko Waipu, ko Kuia raua ko Mac. No reira, nga mihi tonu.
Firstly, Christine, i acknowledge our whanau ties that exist between us although we are not aware of who each other is.
I am from Mokau ki Whangaruru. Ko tenei to taua nei pepeha. Ko Huruiki raua ko Paremata nga maunga tapu. Ko Mokau te awa e rere ana ki te moana. Ko Mokau hoki te ingoa o te marae.Ko Huruiki te ingoa o te whare tupuna. Ko Whakaruru te ingoa o te whare kai. Ko Te Whenuaroa te waka. Ko te Uri o Hikihiki te hapu, ko Ngati Wai te iwi. Ko Waipu te tangata.
Heres something to get you started. Take care.
A te wa.
Tena koe Max
Your information has been an excellent start. I've also had luck with contacting whanau for further information. The info you have given has been the starting point.
I look forward to further korero with you as part of my whanau. I'm just starting to learn my whakapapa, and language. Long over due but never to late.
Kia ora te whanau
