This waharoa is named Hingangaroa me Iranui. It was unveiled on the 20th of March 2019. The whakairo above was a koha by Toi Māori Aotearoa to Te Aitanga a Hauiti. We are very proud to be the custodians of this taonga and to have this showcased in Uawanui-a-Ruamatua.
This story tells the journey of this magnificent whakairo and the many hands that carved it along the way.
