KIA ORA ANA RANUINUI... Welcome to Atiu-nui-
 maruarua Website, my name is Teariki Kura and I am 
 the Owner and Administrator of this website. I have 
 dedicated this website to the memory of my father 
 "Pakura" who have without any doubt left a big 
 impact on us in compliments to his work of writing 
 his own genealogy and those who are closely related 
 to him.. and as well as to the three chiefs and 
 the various tribes of Atiu. Below is the beginning 
 and the populating of our little island Atiu. 
 During my fathers lifetime we have seen his work, 
 such as story telling, teaching cultural values to
 many Atiuan groups, composing some of the many 
 beautiful songs of past events that we enjoy today.

It all started here the creation of Atiu. Te 
 akamata anga o te enua e te tangata.

Mariri Toa, Mariri Manu, Mariri Ariki is the same 
 person, but of different titles he has acquired 
 when he discovered Enuamanu (Atiu) having located 
 Atiu from Takutea where he and his family lived 
 for so many days maybe months before they realised 
 that there is a bigger island to the south of 
 Takutea. He came to Atiu on the vaka called Te-
 Kuti-kuti-Rau-Matangi (meaning; The Sharp Edged 
 Leaf in the wind). This is how Atiu was populated.

 I have created this website to ensure that our 
 unique identity, language, culture and sense of 
 belonging are firmly conveyed to our children and 
 to many future generations to come. Feel free to 
 view this and link yourself into one of the many 
 ancestors I have mentioned, and don't get me wrong 
 I am only following details and information 
 written by my father (Pakura) in which I have 
 managed to connect me to "Pokerekere" that started in  Avaiki Nui and Avaiki Runga. (meaning the last or 
 forgotten frontier or settlement)

When I started on this website in 2006, I simply 
 created it for my family only, but over the last 
 few years, I have received emails from Atiuan 
 asking if I could help them trace their ancestors, 
 as 
 they do not have any records of their akapapa. This 
 is how the website "Atiu-nui-maruarua.Atiu 
 Genealogy" was born.
