Whiria: Ngā Manu Rere

A special flock of Manu Rere, traditionally-made flying kites, lands at Hui Te Ananui a Tangaroa for their first migrating flight away from their Hokianga nest.

Constructed by artist and weaver Ruth Woodbury (Ngatī Korokoro, Te Pouka, Ngatī Wharara, Te Hikutu), the development of each was inspired by the ancient story of Rāhiri the Ancestor, descendent of two Polynesian navigators, Kupe and Nukutawhiti.
