Te Tauri Mokenna Henare - Iwi Tama TeKapua (Tribe) Born in tthe Bay of Plenty, Mauria spent most of her life in Te Puke near Tauranga (North Island, New Zealand) Aotearoa and died in 1972, but her strength and spirit live on. Mauria's greatest wish was to have her portrait painted and to spread the word of unity and love to all. That all Maori unite and join hands in the world in harmony. Mauria's guiding force of strength, love and a smile along with words of wisdom still emanate from her to support us in our daily lives. We see her beautiful smile and feel its reassurance.
