Whiti Te Rā

From May 2018 Pātaka Art + Museum is proud to bring Whiti Te Rā! – the Story of Ngāti Toa Rangatira back to Porirua after its showing at Te Papa.

Featuring unique taonga, the exhibition explores the successes, dramatic setbacks, and extraordinary resurgence of Ngāti Toa Rangatira, starting from Te Heke Mai Raro (the Southern Migration) 200 years ago when Te Rauparaha lead the iwi to the Wellington region.

The exhibition follows the progress of the iwi through their economic rise of the 1820s and 30s, and the bitter conflicts with the colonial government of the 1840s and 50s.
