Tairaawhiti Whakapapa

Genealogies of The East Coast Tairaawhiti Maaori Tribes.


Lorem Ipsum

“The elders say there is no one universal system of teaching Whakapapa. Each Iwi, Haapu and Whanau have their own Tohunga, their own college, and their own methods."

"Their word is thus:"

“Hold steadfastly to our teaching, leave out of consideration that of other tribes. Let their descendants adhere to their teaching and you to ours, so that if you be in error, it is we your relatives who declare it unto you and you are not responsible; and if you are in the right, it is we who shall leave to you this valuable property and should have credit thereof.”

“Noreira!” So begins Te Tairaawhiti Whakapapa.
