Whakapapa: Ngati Awa/Tuwharetoa Help
Kia Ora,

I'm on a journey searching for my whakapapa. My research has come to a hault so am wondering if anyone knows about my ancestors below. I have links to Ngati Awa and Tuwharetoa based on info i've been told.

Hehiri Perenara (Tuwharetoa) married Kune (Ngāti Awa). Not sure on dates or other names, but these are my great grandmothers grand parents. Possibly pre european?

My Great grandmother is Irihitoto Elizabeth Emily Ward, born 1886. Elizabeth married a pakeha Alexander Black.

Irihitoto Elizabeths parents are Raiha Irihitoto (also known as Eliza Ward) who married a pakeha Thomas Ward.

Raihas parents are Hehiri and Kune (as above)

Thats all the info I have, if anyone knows where I can look/ who I could talk to please let me know or email nznativegirl@gmail.com, i'd be forever greatful and can complete the full picture of my whakapapa and identity (very important for me to know where I'm from and who my people are).

Ngā mihi nui!
