Central Hawke's Bay Settlers Museum, 23 High St, Waipawa


All Ages

From December until March 2019, Central Hawke's Bay will be celebrating the homecoming of many taonga from the area. Nga Taonga o Tamatea - Te Hokinga Mai is the first exhibition of its kind and brings home taonga from MTG Hawke's Bay in Napier, Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, and from private collections around the country.

As well as bringing the scattered taonga home, the exhibition has been an opportunity to build relationships between the museum and taiwhenua.

One of the taonga being loaned is a piupiu, which has been in storage since it was donated by a local family to the Dominion Museum in 1909. It hasn't been seen in public since then. This make it even more special to have an exhibition like this, in a small town, where people can see their own local history and learn more about the stories of the area and its people.
