Kia ora koutou.

My Great, great, great,great grandfather was Waitere Te Upoko. His parents were Te Upokotohore and Te Whakatawai. I have found the whakapapa for Te Whakatawai back to Tuteahuka and beyond. But Waitere Te Upoko is listed as being Ngati Wheke of Rapaki. I have been trying to find our link back to Wheke and Te Rakiwhakaputa through him (or his spouse). 

I dont have his spouses name. I come through his daughter Meretini Waitere who was taken by Te Rauparaha as a young girl to Kapiti and she then had children with Manihera Pouhiki from Wairarapa.


Does anyone have information about Waitere Te Upoko they can share please? 

I look forward to hearing from you all
