‘Ko Taupō te Moana’ draws inspiration from the pepeha of Ngati Tuwharetoa which refers to the landscape and moana as an integral feature of identity. This exhibition serves to acknowledge and celebrate our moana in which many nations and people travel from near and far come to view, experience, and appreciate.

An exhibition presented by Taupō Museum, and Tūwharetoa Māori Trust Board.

Curated by Piata Winitana-Murray.
