Rā whānau

In August, the whānau of Huia Dunn gathered in Masterton to celebrate her 90th birthday.

Huia is the daughter of Riria (Doodie), granddaughter of Pita Paipeta (Rāpaki) and Mereana Tarawhata (Arowhenua) and great-granddaughter of Teera and Teoti Paipeta of Rāpaki.

It was a great occasion and a good excuse for whānau to come together. The whakapapa was available for all to see and everyone was very interested. Our thanks go to the late Pam Petherbridge, who had shared the original whakapapa with us – it is in the shape of a big wheel.
