Some stories of the people/whanau buried in Block F, in order of plot number.

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Mihi Hetekia and her husband Rawiri Karaha are buried in Block F. The photo is from 1971, and unfortunately the headstones are no longer there. Mihi was a daughter of Hetekia Haronga and a grand-daughter of Tamai Hiki Te Rangi, father of Hireni Te Kani. Her first husband was Hetekia and after his death she married Karaha. Throughout her lifetime Mrs. Karaha was recognised as a rangatira, and local people invariably looked to her for advice and guidance.
