Our History, Our People,  Our Whanau and Our website that brings us all together.

As families separated and moved further away, we decided to help families keep in touch by building this website. As in today’s society, people cannot travel distances or see each other losing contact phone numbers or email addresses.
The Djaambi website is the answer to many where they can have one place to find their family, chat, leave messages, and have a common goal: finding our heritage and showing our children where and who we are from.
It is hoped that others reading this website can be available to help with wording and add new information to make this interesting for all to be able to learn their heritage
Cultural heritage gives people a sense of unity and belonging within the group it allows them to understand previous generations and the history of where they come from.
 

Whānau is Māori for extended family. It is also used in everyday New Zealand English, as well as in official publications. In Māori society, the whānau is also a political unit, below the levels of hapū and iwi, and the word itself has other meanings, with our Māori and Aboriginal heritage a mixture from when Aboriginals arrived in New Zealand from the late 18th century  and marrying a Māori Wahine and having children which Edward Tomlins  nicknamed Black Ned, a half caste Aboriginal Harpoonest from Tasmania, well known for his expertise on harpooning whales
