My Story

Nuku is my Great Grandfather.
I am the mokopuna of Pohe Kahui.
I never knew my grandfather, but I have heard the stories my Dad has told me about him. Nuku married Rangituhi Karaka Te Aho and they both had 7 children together. 5 Boys and 2 Girls. He passed away in Tuakau, Auckland. He was born in 1885, but in those days Maori never registered there births, deaths and marriages because it was not compulsory, so based on his death certificate, 1885 would have been his birth year. I have heard of some of the stories of how he converted an army tank into a flax collecting vehicle by gas welding off the gun on the tank and driving it like a convertible across the paddocks down in Port Waikato to collect flax. He sold the flax for rope, now these days most rope are synthetic and cheap and easily accessed through cheap Chinese merchants and alike. Nuku was only 78 when he passed away
