Ngati Tamaoho hui-a-iwi

Ngati Tamaoho hui-a-iwi

The Ngati Tamaoho Trust is calling on all Ngati Tamaoho descendants from the three principal marae, Mangatangi, Nga Hau e Wha and Whatapaka to come with us on a journey.

The trust is engaged in the exciting process of settling Ngati Tamaoho’s Treaty Claims with the Crown, to resolve all historical claims in our region.

We are holding our monthly hui-a-iwi in Tamaki-makau-rau (Auckland) this Sunday 29th April at Papakura Marae from 9am. Come along even if it’s only for half the day, you have a right to be involved.

Either email or call or call (09) 551-6266 for more information.

Turou hawaiki!

    Hi, I've just found this article on the web. My family are ngati tamaoho, hine, and paoa. We have been left landless and are seeking a sense of belonging. Our whakapapa is tamaoho who begat taumatawiwi who begat aorere who begat whakamarurangi who begat tote who begat ruamano who begat Te whareaitu who begat Te wharetini, tuteao and hukatia. Te wharetini begat Te rangiaukapa and heteraka. Heteraka begat waimatao, Rihari, patoromu and hunia. Patoromu was father of paretutaki, raharuhi, rangihuamo and Matatahi. Matatahi married tiahuia(tini)Te tauwhara and had tuwhakarongo, paengahuru,taruke, Te retimana, Te raharuhi, rapi, merepukohu, prukau, Te kanara,patoromu,Te rako, and tangiwai. Te raharuhi married aniwhanauwaka Te tere and had ngaroimata(Sarah), kirikohekohe(Anne), retimana(dad), Rona(Lena), rihipeti(Elizabeth) and kataraina(Kathleen). Aniwhanauwaka maiden name is de Thierry. I would be in debt if you could be of help in helping our family find our lost lands and to discover extended whanau. Cheers Steve Matatahi.
