My Whanau

Obituary
Bay of Plenty Times 2 September 1889
There is at present a very large gathering of natives at Karikari, who are holding a tangi over three native women lately deceased. One of them is Meretikawe, the principal chieftainess of the Papamoa estate, the others are Pannikin, a very aged woman, and a young native woman name Mrs Oketopa

There is an article written in Don Staffords book Te Arawa in it the story of our tupuna Pine appears and also how he died and the hapu name Te Kiriwera was derived from that incident. I will insert that story later on in this journal. Pine and his wife Meretikawe were on the 1879 list of owners of Papamoa and Mangatawa.

Our whanau
I hope to write up my family history in the hope it reaches out to other relatives who are maybe looking for a link to the several families we are connected with, especially those who have left the country
