The below table starts with two of Rahiri's wives, Ahuati and Whakaruru, both of whom are highlighted in red. Likewise their direct descendants are also highlighted in red for ease of recognition in the first part of this whakapapa. Understand too that variations of the below whakapapa do exist; further more, not all wives (and their respective descendants) are included nor are all husbands included – due to death, banishment or remarriage – and the resulting offspring from said unions either.

When Lt. Willoughby Shortland in his role as Colonial Secretary took the Treaty of Waitangi to Tuahine's father Te Ruki Kawiti after all else had signed in the north, Kawiti told him that the cost of his signature was Willoughby's name. He took Shortland, transliterated it into Hoterene and gave it to Tuahine's son, who then became known as Hoterene. All Shortland lines of descent in Ngati-Hine come from him.
