In order to give whānau and iwi an opportunity to rephrase the historical record, in 1990 TVNZ's Māori Programme Department produced Pounamu. The television series profiled and celebrated many important Māori figures.

Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turukihas has a colourful historical record. Labelled a rebel by some he was a hero to others. A prophet and religious leader he founded the Ringatū Faith as a Māori response to Christianity. He was relentlessly pursued by armed forces throughout the middle North Island before being pardoned of his supposed crimes.
