About Te Kona

The father of Hōne Wiremu Heke Pōkai (Hōne Heke) was Tupanapana and his mother Te Kona. Heke Pokai was born at Pakaraka, near the Bay of Islands, probably after the death of his mother's brother Pokaia, after whom he was named, at the battle of Moremonui (also known as Te Kai-a-te-karoro and Te Haenga-o-te-one), at Maunganui Bluff, in 1807 or 1808. His parents were Te Kona and Tupanapana; he was the third of their children. His brothers, Tuhirangi and Peia, were considerably older. His sister, Taingarui, died at an early age. http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/biographies/1h16/heke-pokai-hone-wiremu
