CALLING ALL NGATI WAHIAO DESCENDANTS

A book on the history of Ngati Wahiao people and occupation of Whakarewarewa up to present day has been commissioned by Te Maru o Ngati Wahiao.  Dr Marian Mare is primarily responsible for preparation of the material and it is well underway.  The timeframe for a draft manuscript is late June 2015.

The opportunity for all Wahiao whanau is available now to contribute material, memorabilia, news clippings, photos and stories, your memories or those told to you by your elders.  This is an opportunity not to be missed.  We will strive to contact all senior members of whanau lines and will use available networks to contact as many as we can.  Anything provided will be cherished and safely returned.    

If you would like more information or would like a time for an interview or to obtain the questionnaire, please contact Lori Paul at lori_paul@xtra.co.nz  or 022-0305646, 07 3502182. 

Please pass this information on to others who may not be online.
