Hi Orbs. Re Mata Whio. I know a little bit. She had another child with Wiremu Potiki. I understand that Wiremu was born at Moeraki and he later moved down to the Heads at Otago. The child of the union of Matawhio and Potiki was named Ihaia Potiki. Wiremu Potiki had 3 'wives' or I suppose more correctly, 3 known relationships. I understand that Ihaia was born at the Otago Heads. I think the 'Weiho' may be a mis-spelling. Martha is a child of Te Hori and Te Ruahaunui. The parents of Te Hori are Kahuraki and Te Maaha. The parents of Te Maaha are Tane Whakatorotika and Te Maka. Tane Whakatorotika was a prominent Ngai Tahu chief of the pa at Pukekura (the Otago Heads. I am seeking a photo of Mata, Martha. I can give you more info if you contact me via my email address. marsmg96@hotmail.com
