HOMEWho is Arotahi?Arotahi whakapapa


When talking about Whakapapa, we are discussing lines of genealogy and ancestry in light of leadership, kinship and those who have carved the paths we walk on now. Whakapapa maps and binds all connections – both spiritual and physical. Our Whakapapa must begin with God, thus our whakapapa is wide and long. The above exploration into our history and whakapapa only gives a slight sense of the many threads that have woven us to our place now.
