Story: Te Arawa

Rangitihi’s children

Rangitihi’s children

The descendants of Īhenga and Hatupatu married into other major lines of the Te Arawa tribe, and in time they were led by Rangitihi, Tamatekapua’s great-great-grandson. This whakapapa (genealogical chart) shows Rangitihi’s seven sons and one daughter, who were collectively called Ngā Pūmanawa e Waru o te Arawa – the Eight Beating Hearts of Te Arawa.
