I am trying to find some connection or lineage, from my adopted dads side to the Maori Royal Family or Kingitanga. My dad's name is Ratuhoehoe (Raara) Haunui, and my mum's name is, Ani Te Wharemahauhau Haunui (nee Hetekia) My grandfather's name is, Wiremu
(Tikoko) Haunui, and my Grandmother's name is Paretoka, but her Surname unknown. He also had another wife before my grandmother, her name was [Keriana Waihaki] My Great Grandfather's name is [Pakeke Te Haunui] and my great Grandmother's name is Raiha Ahipaura.
Now, I'm not sure, if these are my Great Great Grandparents, [Wikitoria] unsure if that is a Surname or Christian name, and [Amarama Heretaura]
There is one more name, Turuamo = unsure if that's my Great Great Great Grandfather or Great Great Great Grandmother.
This is as far as the family tree goes.
My adopted father, was born at Waikato, apparently at Huntly region. Unsure how long he was there for.
He then moved to Waiotahi Valley, Opotiki. Bay Of Plenty, and made it his home.
My dads Tribe was [Ngati-Kahungunu] and his Sub-Tribe was [Ngati-Tamatea]
If anyone could help find the connection, to the Royal family, it would be a real blessing.
PLEASE email me ASAP if you find other information.
