‘Ko Rongowhakaata’ Iwi Exhibition at Tairawhiti Museum 2016-17

Our next Rongowhakaata Iwi showcase follows in the footsteps of our successful ‘Rukupō’ Marae Exhibition series this past January. ‘Ko Rongowhakaata’ will be segmented into specific themes and korero, expressing different facets of Rongowhakaata that when seen together will tell our story as an iwi. This will be an inspiring and comprehensive lead in to the Iwi Exhibition at Te Papa 2017-19.

Please see an overview of the exhibition themes and concept development  below:
