Greetings, greetings. greetings to you all.

This is my pepeha about myself and where my family links to up North in New Zealand.  My whakapapa or ancestry  traces my tupuna- ancestors back to their arrival to New Zealand.  It talks about my waka or canoe that my Tupuna came on.  The lands that settled in and the rivier they lived by.    It tells you my Iwi which is Ngapuhi and also the name of my marae.

Kia pai to ra

Tania
