Nau mai haere mai. For adults and children alike, enjoy some modern-day storytelling as we explore our Tipuna stories with Albie Gibson and Wiremu Ruru.

Our primary school-aged children are already discovering this magical collection of stories in the classroom and gaining confidence in our founding stories. Now, thanks to the team at Te Runanga of Turanganui a Kiwa, the rest of the family can enjoy learning about significant ancestors of this region, as well as the place names and landmarks of Turanganui-a-Kiwa.

About Tuia 250 ki Tūranga 2018
Over the weekend October 5 - 8, Tuia 250 ki Tūranga is presenting a number of events for the community designed to encourage us to explore the multiple histories of our region through art, kōrero, wānanga, sailing, karakia and good old fashioned manaakitanga. Tipuna kōrero will be shared in the library for whānau, the waka hourua Tairāwhiti will be hosting visits and sails, the MV Takitimu will be taking people out into the Bay with two story tellers and historians on board ready to share insights from the past 1000 years, there will be a discussion panel, local people sharing their insights, a live cross at the Museum to an exhibition half a world away featuring local taonga, and dawn karakia as we remember the fallen and share parakuihi afterwards.
It’s all open to the whole community and entry is either free or very low cost of $5.
Check out our website for more details.
