This exhibition marks an important milestone in the history of a significant collection of taonga Māori from Mangatū.

In March this year, these taonga were returned to Tairāwhiti from Auckland War Memorial Museum.

The collection consists of eight intricately carved tao or tara (spear points), a carved pare (door lintel) and a number of stone mata (blades)

All welcome for the opening of this exhibition at 5.30pm on Friday 13 April 2018
