Te Urewera: The People and the Land are One

1 min read

Kia ora e hoa ma,

Can you forward this panui to your hapu and wharua networks.

The Tuhoe Exhibition, Te Urewera: The People and the Land are One, is currently showing at the Whakatane Museum and runs until early June. Much collective effort has been done designing and collecting imagery, artefacts, and story development aimed at working on the negative public perception encountered last May 2010 over Tuhoe negotiations.

Prominent Tuhoe leaders from the 19th century are also displayed as well as prominent Tuhoe who have made significant contributions to New Zealand.

Since the opening two weeks ago, the museum has been inundated with many people including schools, organisations and groups keen to gain an insight into the Tuhoe way of life. We encourage Tuhoe whanau and hapu to also take this opportunity to visit the exhibition.

Below is an article by Rod Emmerson of the NZ Herald who attended the opening.
