    Kākahu Pekepeke

    written by Keri Welham

    This report describes taonga at Ōtūmoetai School, focusing on a very special whakairo (carving). It explains why the whakairo is a taonga to the school and the wider community. As well as speaking directly to Māori students, this story provides opportunities for all students to make connections to their own understandings about taonga, the arts, and cultural practices.

    Rua and Te Manu

    A traditional story of Ngāti Porou

    Retold and illustrated by Isobel Te Aho-White

    This story, presented in a graphic text format, tells how Rua journeys under the sea to rescue his son Te Manu, who has been taken by Tangaroa. In the undersea world, Rua discovers beautiful whakairo (carvings) on the whare of Tangaroa and, after defeating the sea god, brings the art of whakairo to the world above the sea. Ideas about whakairo are explored further in the article “Kākahu Pekepeke” in this journal.
