Ngā Taonga Tuku Iho
This photo was taken circa February 1954 at Westport. It is thought to have been taken at the 21st birthday celebrations of Audrey Eileen Hansen, nee McLaren (pictured far right), who was the daughter of Heni Mahuika III and Daniel McLaren II. Audrey was involved with Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō during its re-establishment. Pictured with her are her first cousins, Meryl Dawn Matiu (nee Gilsenan) and Leslie James Gilsenan (Bon).
Each month we’d like to profile a tipuna of Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō. If you would like to submit a profile of one of your tīpuna for the pānui or to discuss any matter to do with whakapapa, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
