Whakapapa of Rangitihi and his descendants

For Māori, sexual relationships provided opportunities to develop social connections between different groups. This whakapapa (genealogy) of the descendants of the chief Rangitihi shows how strategic marriages and the outcome of sexual unions created strong links between tribal groups that might otherwise have been in conflict.

Rangitihi's two descendants, Kawatapuarangi and Tūhourangi, are the ancestors of Tāmiuru and Taiwere, whose son Pūkākī married Ngāpuia, consolidating relationships between the tribes of Ngāti Pikiao, Tuhourangi and Ngāti Whakaue.
