Are Te Pahi of the North Island and Pahi of the Forveaux Strait South Island the same person?

I am Australian and believe that I am a descendant of Meriana Tei Tei through her daughter Mere PII.  I understand that Mere married Victor Pike and that their son, Joseph Pike and his wife, Susan Osborne had a daughter (their 11th child), called Gladys Christina Pike.  Gladys was my paternal grandmother who married Eric James Collins in South Grafton NSW on 27th December 1916.  My father was Arthur Leslie Collins (born 7th September 1922).  I am Arthur and Laurel Collins only son, born 9th June 1950.

I would be surprised if they were the same person given the distances involved. Finding online resources (or even written resources) for Māori genealogy can be a challenge especially pre-1916? as registration was not compulsory for Māori.
