April 8 to September 3, 2017
Aratoi in partnership with local iwi Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa is developing a large-scale exhibition redressing the long and rich history of the Wairarapa region and involving major loans of taonga from national and international private and public collections.
The exhibition title has a conceptual depth and a strong historical link to Kahungunu’s repudiation of the Crowns underhanded land purchases. The title contains three aspects; the retention of long lasting knowledge and learning; enduring peace and the marae built for the Kingitanga by Ngairo.
