  • I am a great grand daughter of Charles Tarei Taite. My great grandmother was Maunganui Taite who was married to my Koro Taite. I never got to meet him as he passed away before knowing i existed. Nana Taite and i were very close I have been told many stories about him and always make time to reflect on all his achievements he has done in his lifetime.
