Paterson whānau visit

Te hokinga ki te kainga
We recently had the pleasure of welcoming home Rawi Paterson (son of Wiki Paterson née Ellison) and members of the Paterson whānau, including his late sister Sally Bannister’s daughters and whānau. Rawi and the whānau, many of whom are based in the Napier area, spent several days getting reacquainted with special people and places before gathering at Hui te Rangiora Church and urupā for an unveiling. It was a time filled with laughter and tears, reminiscing and plenty of singing — all the ingredients of a successful visit.

The Paterson whānau gathered at Puketeraki Marae.
