Tēnei Tonu Exhibition

1 Tennyson St, Napier

This stunning exhibition features a broad range of historic and contemporary taonga from the collection of the Hawke's Bay Museums Trust, Ruawharo Ta-u-rangi.

Translated as 'always here', Tēnei Tonu shares diverse stories of local Iwi Ngati Kahungunu and their enduring connection to the land.

Ten taonga riri (weapons) have recently come out of storage and are on now on display - some have not been exhibited for over 100 years'. They are representative of the nearly 200 taiaha and tewhatewha held in the collection, ranging from pre-contact through to the 1940s they show a variety of styles and materials.

One of the items on display is a beautiful whale-bone taiaha, and if you look closely you will see one eye has been rimmed with red wax and the other with paua - making for an unusual finished look.

Another has a noticeable bulge in the binding. We know from other museums (which have X-rayed similar taonga) that items such as teeth or pounamu can be held within this wrapping - one day the mystery of this taiaha may be revealed!
