  • Hi, my name is Te-Ara McInman, I am the grand-daughter of the late Mereana Henare Currie (nee Tahiwi) who was the daughter of Henare Tahiwi. I don't know that much about my great grandfather, however what I do know is that his daughter was amazing, and I am a result of her life. I guess I would like to pay my respects to this man and acknowledge him. Thank you
