About the Movie
In 1769 Tupaia, a Tahitian high priest, joined the crew of the Endeavour as it navigated the South Pacific. A navigator, diplomat, artist and explorer; Tuapaia played a pivotal role in interpreting and mediating between Māori communities and the crew of the Endeavour. As a navigator and voyager himself Tupaia brings his own kōrero to a well known story through the voices of his whānau who are on a mission to bring the story of their tipuna to light. You may even recognise some of the people in the movie...

We are showing this three part series over two nights.
- Saturday night - part one
- Sunday night - parts two and three
So please make sure that you register for both.

Admission is free, but registrations are a really good idea so people don’t turn up and can’t fit into our space.
Doors will open from 5:00pm, with the event getting underway at 5:30pm.

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.
