"Puanga  - star of the New Year, star of abundance"

9th June to 14th October 2018

Whangarei Museum will look to the past to inform ou modern Matariki celebrations through the exhibition Puanga from 8th June to 14th October.  Puanga historically was a time for family and friends to gather together from their seasonal settlements to commemorate lost ones. pass on whakapapa (genealogy) and matauranga (knowledge), and to focus on the preservation and storage of plentiful foods to support the coming year.  A collection of carefully curated taonga (treasures) will be on display to reflect these core concepts and connect us with the people that have lived these traditions before us.  Visitors will be encouraged to record their reflections on the year past inspired by the exhibition.
