The first in a series of talks at the National Library, Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa, being held in association with the exhibition "Wāhine/Ngā Wāhine Māori: Ki tua o te ‘puhi rauwhero’" currently showing in the Turnbull Gallery.

"Hākui: Women of Kāi Tahu" explores and celebrates the stories of Kāi Tahu wāhine from the perspective of uri whakatipu, the current generations. Whānau, rūnaka, and iwi throughout New Zealand have generously shared their taoka for the exhibition, which also features objects from the
Otago Museum collections.

In her talk, Migoto Eria, curator of Hākui: Women of Kāi Tahu, will outline the importance of kaupapa wahine for this exhibition and will discuss some of its interactive features, as well as iwi contributions.

Migoto is Manager Iwi Development at Te Papa Tongarewa. She is of Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāi Tuhoe, and Ngāti Raukawa descent. Promoting Te Reo Māori and its use is a key aspect of her mahi.
