I would like to give the correct spelling of the name Merekorama. It is Mihikorama.
She was married to Rapata Te Waha. I am a descendant of Mihikorama Kahuao. My grandmother was Merania (nee Ihaia-Talty) Chase. Her mother was Mererukuroa who was a daughter to Mihikorama.

Thank you for providing the correct spelling for Mihikorama Kahuao and the whakapapa.
I am a great grandson of Wikitoria Kahuao and knew both George and Merania Chase well. I would often call on Merania when she was a resident of the Rangatira Kaumatua Flats
George and Merania were good friends of my father Roger Kahuao Kusabs.
Kia ora

Kia Ora e te whanau.
I have been on a mission to find the whakapapa of my great Nanny Te Ao Rapata Nuku (nee Te Waha). Through research I have found a link however still need to meet and confirm with other whanaunga to make sure. Apparently Te Ao's parents were Rapata Te Waha and Mihikorama Te Waha (nee Kahuao). Through searching her name I came across this. Here is how I believe I whakapapa to Mihikorama Te Waha (nee Kahuao).
Vance Nuku - Angela Nuku (mother) - Rapata Te Ao Nuku (grandfather) - Te Ao Rapata Nuku (great grandmother) - Mihikorama Kahuao(great great grandmother)

Kia Ora e te whanau,
I am on a journey to find my Nannys whakapapa. Her name is Te Ao Rapata Nuku *(nee Te Waha). Little is known about my Nan with my whanau as she passed away at a young age. Through research I believe I have found a link and that's how I came across this. Apparently Te Ao's parents were Rapata Te Waha and Mihikorama Kahuao.
If either of you can help me with my journey please contact me through any of the below.
