This beautifully illustrated book is a whakapapa, iliustrated stories and tribal maps that make up the story of Tamainup and his descendants.

Kokako was a man of Mataatua descent with roots all over the country. His son, Tamainupo, was borne by a Kawhia woman, and having left Kawhia to look for his father, he met and married Tukotuku, daughter of Mahanga, while she was with a bird-snaring party on the Waipa. They settled on the Waipa between Whatawhata and Ngaruawahia, and from them Ngati-Tamainupo are descended.
