  • Uncle George Kingi Hoerara was my mother`s younger sibling. He was born and bred at a small settlement, 3 kilometers north of Te Araroa called Horoera and his exact birth place was at a small inlet called Maruhou. Every year on ANZAC day I celebrate your life, May you RIP uncle, always remembered and loved by your whanau.
