Here is a selection of my learning that I wish to share. Not all my work will be perfect all of the time as I am a work in progress. I welcome positive and helpful comments.
Cool Turua, Your ancestor Te Roro o te rangi had a famous patu like weapon called a mere. This mere was called "Kaitangata" and was at the heart of a fierce war between your ancestors of Ngati Whakaue and another iwi Ngati Tuwharetoa from Taupo. It was a sad day and Ngati Whakaue didn't win, but what is remembered is the courage that your ancestors showed during battle.Here is a link to a video showing your ancestor Te Roro o te rangi's brother Tunohopu seeking revenge on Ngati Tuwharetoa; https://youtu.be/brHtjgVYuWIHere is a link to what a mere looks like:http://collections.tepapa.govt.nz/exhibitions/pounamu/artworks.aspx?pirn=1980&oirn=49354Good work, from Mum
