'Nāu i whatu te kākahu, he tāniko tāku. You weave the cloak, and I’ll weave the border'. Te Awe: Nga Taonga o te Whare Pora - An Auckland Museum project.

Auckland Museum is enhancing over 2500 textiles in the Taonga Māori collection through the Te Awe project.

The Te Awe team are collaborating with a group of expert weavers to integrate language and cultural knowledge about how to best describe, conserve, store and display these taonga.

To ensure that we honour the mana of each individual object and improve their records to the highest possible standard.

Are you interested in family and local history? Or about the history of New Zealand? Then come along to one of our fortnightly HeritageTalks.

Experts in specialised fields deliver these talks and provide insight into our histories.

HeritageTalks take place at Whare Wānanga, Level 2, Central City Library, unless otherwise stated.
