Te Maori He Hokinga Mahara - 8 Nov


I te tau kotahi mano e iwa rau e waru tekau ma wha  i whakawhiti atu etahi taonga me tetahi tira kaumatua ki Amerika i raro i te kaupapa o Te Maori - ara, kia riro ma ratou hei whakaatu i te wairua Maori, i te ngakau Maori, i te kanohi Maori ki te ao.

No tenei whakakitenga whakahirahira hoki te orokohanga o te hotaka nei a Waka Huia. I te huringa o te rua tekau ma rima tau mai i te whakatuwheratanga o te whakakitenga nei ka whakanui a Waka Huia i a Te Maori.

In 1984, one hundred and seventy four taonga and a group of kaumatua travelled to the USA. They were there to support Te Maori - an exhibition of sacred Maori taonga.

This exhibition is also the genesis of our own taonga, Waka Huia. Twenty five years after the opening of this exhibition in New York Waka Huia celebrates Te Maori.
