Rereahu is a Māori iwi of New Zealand[1] and a direct descendant of Hoturoa, the captain of Tainui canoe. He was born to Raukawa and Turongoihi and was the oldest to his siblings Takihiku, Whakatere and Kurawari. He end up marrying Rangianewa after meeting her at Taumarunui. They settled in the village called Tihikoreoreo, next to Waimiha where they had their first child, Te Ihinga-a-rangi. Soon after, they separated leaving the child with his mother. On Tiroa and Nga Haerenga there are two houses built which are dedicated to Rereahu.[2]
