Hākui: Women of Kāi Tahu
Discover the richness of Māori culture as you experience Māori art and music in the unique setting of the Tāngata Whenua gallery. Learn how legends are made and stories are shared from generation to generation, and hold and examine Māori instruments to identify their purpose and sound. Design and carve a huhu (bullroarer) or make a porotiti (whizzer) in the optional hands-on workshops.
Join us in term one 2016 for our Hākui module which visit our special exhibition Hākui: Women of Kāi Tahu to explore the unique role of women in the creation and transmission of the exceptional arts of our tāngata whenua.
