The genealogy of Whakaue

Lake Rotorua’s western shores, including Mokoia Island, are the traditional territory of Ngāti Whakaue. The tribe take their name from Whakaue-kaipapa, son of Uenukukōpako. With his wife Rangiuru, Whakaue had six children. Of these the most famous was the flute-player Tūtānekai, who was in fact Whakaue’s stepson. In the final segment of the genealogy is Hine-i-tūrama, who married the Pākehā trader Phillip Tapsell. When muskets became available in the 1830s, warfare escalated. In one skirmish Te Waharoa killed Hine-i-tūrama’s great-uncle Te Haupapa, who happened to be visiting her when Te Waharoa sacked the Maketū trade station in 1836.
