Ngati Whankaue Whakapapa
Whakaue Kaipapa, the eponymous ancestor of Ngati Whakaue is descended eight generations from Tamatekapua. His genealogy is as follows:
Whakaue was, through Uenukukopako, a great grandson of Rangitihi. His grandfather Tuhourangi together with Tuhourangi's older siblings were known as "nga pumanawa e waru o Rangitihi".
Ngati Whakaue reside at Maketu, the landing place of Te Arawa waka, and Rotorua. It is during the times of Tutanekai that the name Ngati Whakaue became both prominent and recognised as the umbrella title covering the independent entity of Whakaue's, and more particularly Tutanekai's descendants who inhabit the shores of Rotorua.
The genealogy of Tutanekai and his descendants is outlined as follows showing the major ancestors after whom, in particular, the now well known "Koromatua hapu" of Ngati Whakaue are named.
