Hēmi Pōtatau

Hēmi Pōtatau

I whānau mai a Hēmi Pōtatau (o Ngāti Kahungunu me Ngāti Rakaipaaka) ki Nūhaka, kei te raki o Te Matau-a-Māui. Nō te tau 1931 ka tū ia hei minita. I te tau 1970 e 66 ōna tau, ka tīmata ia ki te whare wānanga. He tangata ia i ngākau nuitia e te Rōpū Reo Māori o Te Whare Wānanga o Wikitōria. Kei konei a ia i te tau 1978 e kōrerorero ana ki ngā tamariki o te Kura o Pukeahu ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Ko tā rātou petihana kia hangaia tētahi pouaka whakaata Māori, he mautohe nō muri ake ka whai kiko.
