"looking for whakapapa of Rapata/Te kanawa/Erueiti/Tamainupo Whanau"
My Name is Susan Watene, I am a descendant of Tamainupo of Ngati Wairere. My Greatgrandmother is Hoana Rapata or Erueiti or Te Kanawa, this is the person I am looking for.
No one in my Whanau knows very little about her. She married Lauderdale Maule Carnachan, he was a land surveyor. They had 5 children, I am grandchild Kate Rangipare Carnachan who married Walter Mconie. They had a farm in Ngutunui/Pirongia.
My Marae is Rakaunui where we believe Hoana was buried. I now have 7 children which I would love to pass my whakapapa on to to preserve our whanau.
