Ko Shona tōku ingoa Nō Kaihu ōku tīpuna Kei te noho au ki Maraetai, Tamaki Makaurau Here is a retrospect of my Tīpuna Parore Te Āwha of whom I am a direct descendent. Parore Te Āwha, of the hapū Te Kuihi, was born at Mangakāhia, probably sometime in the 1790s. Through his father, Toretumua Te Āwha, he was descended from the high chief Toa of Te Roroa, kin of Ngāti Whātua, whose grandson Taramainuku adopted the hapū name Te Kuihi, and from the renowned Ngāpuhi chief Te Ponaharakeke of Ngāti Ruangaio. His mother, Pēhirangi, was a grand-daughter of Te Whakaaria, a famous Ngāpuhi leader of Ngāi Tāwake and Ngāti Tautahi and close kin of Hongi Hika. Nga Mihi
