Thank you to Peter Tuia who had the initiative and drive to start documenting our journey.  He spent countless hours researching and gathering an array of documents, photos and history that makes up this site and the Tuia Family Tree on MyHeritage.  One amazing person allowed us all to appreciate our culture and heritage.

 A huge thank you to Helen Tuia who spent time with Aurelia Tuia at her home in Allnutt Street Donnybrook to document her memories.  These notes have been pivotal to the content of this site.  Helen has also kept the most amazing collection of documents to be treasured by future generations.
