Located on Tuakiri | Identity, Level 2, Tūranga, Te Pito Huarewa/Southbase Gallery houses exhibitions that reflect the cultural identity and history of Christchurch and Canterbury.
Future exhibitions: Kā Huru Manu, 25 January - 28 April 2019
Compiled over ten years, Kā Huru Manu (The Ngāi Tahu Cultural Mapping Project) is dedicated to recording and mapping the traditional Māori place names and associated histories in the Ngāi Tahu rohe (tribal area).
Come and explore early maps of the Māori place names of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula, and celebrate the people who have brought this history to life.
This exhibition will help you explore and learn about the places that we live in!
The opening weekend of the exhibition will feature guest speakers, live demonstrations of Kā Huru Manu, workshops and Pūtoi (Family Learning Time).
Hau atu te karaka, te reo rāhiri ki a koutou kia piki mai, kia tauti mai!
