Ngā Pūmanawa o Te Arawa: The Beating Hearts of Te Arawa, Rotorua Museum of Art and History
Ngā Pūmanawa o Te Arawa: The Beating Hearts of Te Arawa was unveiled to the public on 2 September 2011.
Created for Rotorua Museum’s newly built Don Stafford Memorial Wing, this permanent exhibition traces the rich history of Te Arawa, one of Aotearoa’s most famous tribal confederations.
Story Inc developed the concepts, content, design, and supervised the installation of the eight separate galleries, which follow Te Arawa’s journey from Pacific origins to the present day.
The exhibition brings together many of the tribe’s most iconic taonga (treasures) for the very first time, and through them tells the Rotorua region’s most amazing stories.
