    Te Pou Henry - Myself = I am the eldest direct male descendant of the male line in our 4th generation to my great-grandfather Toka Henry. He married Tangiora Henry, my koro William Henry and his wife my beautiful kuia "out of respect for her I will keep her identity anonymous" who begat my father Peka Henry. I am the eldest son to my father and hoping to gain as much historic knowledge around the battle experience of my grandfather. He was of Ngapuhi decent and our males are very athletic and strong. Acknowledgement to you my koro for doing us proud in war.
