Be a South Seas Companion Supporter


Also known as Pateamai, Whyderredee, and Fier re te
Wife of Tetua Ounumaona, paramount chief of Taiarapu (d. 1790) and subsequently consort of Pomare I.

Oliver identifies Vaiareti as the woman whom Emory and Adams called Pateamai, Bligh called Whyderredee, and Vancouver called Fier re te (1974: 3, 1188-9). He reconstructs Vaiareti's biography as follows: She first married Tetua Ounumaona, younger brother and successor of the Vehiatua title-holder of Taiarapu who died 1775.
