Hi lil,

Just a thought, perhaps making contact with the Wairoa District Museum, to see what they hold on the Maori side.  You may never know until you ask :D



KHP

yes good idea. But get all you have in order.  They will have contacts into the various marae &  could do some introductions I am sure.  For General and contemporary information about old Wairoa see if you can get hold of the books by Thomas Lambert...The story of old Wairoa etc.  Thomas Lambert came from Co Galway and was resident in Wairoa for many many years. He was a newspaper editor then historian and held in high regard.
