Te whakatuwheratanga o Te Tumu Herenga Waka : 6 Tihema 1986, Poneke, Te Whare Wananga o Wikitoria



This next section of the booklet is devoted to explanations about the significance of the tupuna depicted on the poupou of Te Tumu Herenga Waka. (See accompanying plan for the location of these inside the whare). The explanations were written by the students and staff of the Maori Studies Department and where possible, by the descendants or members of the iwi of the tupuna depicted. It is acknowledged however that the korero written here is not definitive and in most cases only presents one of many possible interpretations of events. It is our fervent hope, here at Te Tari Maori o te Whare Wananga o Wikitoria that this section of the booklet will stimulate others to research, discuss and record the events in the life of their iwi.

"E kore au e ngaro, he kakano i ruruia mai i Rangiatea."
