I'm on holiday-Yeehaa

Yes!!! I'm having a wonderful holiday, and I won't be back on board until, I get back on the 29th September...see you all then.



Ngāti Kahu - TeRāHoroi - Saturday 13 September

I was having a kōrero with a wahine, who told me that the rohe of Nga Puhi was, to her knowledge, all of the area north of Auckland. I enlightened her that there are a multitude of Iwi in the North, other than hers. Ngāti Kahu is one of them, I have also included a photo of the old whare. The new whare is being built, shown on a previous post, Te RāApa, Wed 10. Te Pātu, e ngā wā o mua, was built to stop Nga Puhi from advancing on Te Aupouri.
