Carvings tell stories of Ngāti Tamaoho

Published: 26 August 2016

A striking series of carvings created under the guidance of Ngāti Tamaoho master carver Ted Ngataki  was recently unveiled on Pukekohe Hill.

Mr Ngataki also redesigned a structure already in the park to support the carvings, which tell the stories of the area and Ngāti Tamaoho as mana whenua.

The works were initiated by Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) in partnership with Auckland Council’s Arts and Culture team.
