Whakapapa of Ngati Whatua, or, History of the ancestors of Ngati Whatua

Author: Paora Tūhaere
Ref No: GNZMMSS 25
Date Added: c1881
Date Created: 1881

This nine-page whakapapa (genealogy) of Ngāti Whatua was compiled by Paora Tūhaere (Ngāti Whatua’s acknowledged leader after his uncle, Apihai Te Kawau, died in 1868) at the request of Grey.

He traces lines of descent from various ancestors including the legendary Tumutumuwhenua, described as being ‘not of this world’ who came from the interior of the earth. He also discusses the migration of the Ngāti Whatua people from Muriwhenua in the Far North, their settlement at Kaipara, as Te Uringutu and Te Taoū and their battles with – and the eventual settlement and intermarriage with the local iwi of Te Waiōhua and Ngā Oho descent, on the Tāmaki isthmus.
