This is a photo of me and my Great Grandmother, Te Wai Tauariki, born 1866, died 1971, she was 105 years old She had a traditional moku which she received when she was 23 years old, in those days the moku was chiselled onto the face and was very painful.

She loved a good party and smoked a pipe and rollies. She lived in Maraetai for a while, which is where my Grandmother was born. Nanny was a mid-wife and supported Maori from around the area including Great and Little Barrier and Waiheke Island.
