Story: Ngā rōpū tautohetohe – Māori protest movements

Te Kurī a Pāoa

Te Kurī a Pāoa

Large banners laid across the hillside represent the 2002 protest of Ngāi Tāmanuhiri people against the sale of Te Kurī a Pāoa (Young Nicks Head), an iconic piece of coastline in Poverty Bay, to an overseas owner. Negotiations with the new owner resulted in continued public access to the headland. In March 2011 a deed of settlement with the Crown saw part of Te Kurī a Pāoa returned to Ngāi Tāmanuhiri.
