  • The Mokotupu Family.

    Teina Mokoenga is first cousin to John Mokotupu, Mataio Mokotupu and Tepaki Poaza.

    All four men were apart of the soldiers who enlisted for World War One and they were all closely related.

    Teina Mokoenga is related through his mum, Utivaru Mokotupu. Utivaru Mokotupu is the sister to Poata/Poaza/Boaza/Mokotupu. Poata is the biological father of the John, Mataio and Tepaki (although Tepaki has a different mother).
