I have a Major stumbling block trying to trace our whakapapa thru my grandfather Hurua Walker/Waaka. Hurua was sent to Tokomaru Bay to be raised. Story Has it a Maketu was put on our family that is the reason why he was sent from Waikato. From my research Hurua was born in tepoi, father was George Walker (Hori Waaka) Mother Panatita Te Awanui. I know his siblings were Pare, Heni (Fox) & Rehi, we have affliations to Omeka Pa, also Ruapeka Marae. As yet have not been able to make a break thru
Ki ora whanau, I have managed to trace our whakapapa as direct descendants back to Ruataupare, Porourangi and even further to Paikea. upto Pororangi is 18 generations , then 22 generations to Paikea. Our connection to them stems from Paternal great grandmother Te Muriwai Akenehi Manuel (nee Tamitere) she was married to Mapuka Manuel born 1853 hense our connection to Jose Manuel and the greater Paniora Family. Also we are direct descendants Maternal to another famous chief Iharaira Te Houkamau 8th Generation thru our great(3) grand Mother Iritana Parapara (nee: Houkamau)
