Does anyone know the name: "Temaikoha" or "Tamaikoha" - Tuhoe descent in the 1800's?

Question by lynaire

Kia ora

Does anyone have any knowledge of the Tamaikoha whanau from Tuhoe? I'm trying to get my whakapapa on my father's side (Roy Mckenzie Johnson- my deceased father)

Any help would be appreciated

edmondsallan- Hi - I read your question. > Are you sure the name is spelt right . I might be jumping off the deep end here But have a look at this - It may be what you are looking for . " Te Tamaikora " with an ( R ) not an ( H ) 2nd letter from the end of name . If I am correct the following may assist you . Starting from the original canoe " Mataatua " Landing at the Mouth of the Whakatane River .
Captain - " Toroa "
Tohunga - !/2 brother to captain ? --
Among the crew -Younger brother oF Captain - " Puhi "
Sister " Muriwai "
Son " Ruaihona "
Daughter " Wairaka "
>> They inter - married with the old trlbe - that was already there - ' " Te Hapu "
Over several Generations a new tribe was born " Tuhoe- Potiki "
They started & went in Land up towards the Head waters of the Whakatane River / Decendants( " Wairaka's Son -"Tamatea " -He was also Grandson of the captain of the Canoe " Mataatua " " Toroa " who Married - " Paewhiti "
" Tamatea-ki- te -Huathi -m - Paewhiti" They had Three ( 3 ) sons
" Te-Whenanui-i-" = " Tamaikora " - " Pukenui " Is this Person you are looking for ? Second son . Time frame - approximately - early 1800's to 1900's These three were also leaders of the
" Tuhoe " tribe and fought the europeans > I hope this assists you . What I have put here is about 95 % accurate . You certainly have a difficult whakapapa too trace . Good luck - Regards -Edmondsallan

In helping a Maori friend to prepare a Waitangi Tribunal claim, I did a fair bit of research on Tamaikoha. It is contained within that claim, and if you give me your email address, I'll send a copy of it to you.
I regard Tamaikoha as a Maori equivalent to the Scottish William Wallace.

Perhaps I should have given my email address for you to contact me?
It is davidpaterson.paterson@gmail.com
