Te Hono ki Hawaiki, ki Te Papa Tongarewa

Te Hono ki Hawaiki, ki Te Papa Tongarewa

Ko Te Hono ki Hawaiki te wharenui e tū rā i Te Papa Tongarewa. I tāraia ngā whakairo o te whare i raro i te awe o Cliff Whiting. I whakamahi a Whiting i ngā papa rākau whakangao (customwood) mō ngā whakairo. He ōrite tērā tūāhua ki te kapo ake o ngā tīpuna Māori i ngā rākau a te Pākehā hei whakakaha ake i ā rātou toi. He rerekē ngā whakairo me ngā tūmomo tae o tēnei whare. E ai ki a Whiting, i arotahi ia ki te ‘whakauru i ngā iwi katoa e noho ana ki konei’.
