Artefact

Haere ki ngā wā o mua ka haurapa ki te ao o ngā taonga rongonui, atakite hoki, i te taha o Dame Anne Salmond, me ana kōrero whakahirahira mō Aotearoa. I hangaia mā te tautoko a Irirangi te Motu. Ia Rāhina, 8.30 i te pō.

Nō waenganui i ngā rautau 1630 ki te 1730 te kete me ngā kai o roto. I kitea e tētahi kaihopu rāpeti mō te Teihana o Puketoi i Otakou i te tau 1895. I roto te kete i te puare o tētahi ana, tata ki te Awa o Taieri. He rongonui tēnei rohe, i tapaina, i takahia e ngā iwi Māori o te taitonga, ka hūnuku rātau ki uta mai i ō rātau kāika matua i te takutai o Otakou ki te aruaru, te hī ika, ki te kohi otaota hei mahi hua pueru.

He whakaahua ātahu o te wā ngā kai kei rō kete. Kei roto ngā taputapu raranga, te harakeke me ngā rau tikumu, te kiri kurī, ngā anga hei whakarite harakeke, ngā pāraerae i whatungia mā ngā rau o te tī kōuka, he kete pūkoro i mahia mā te kiekie, ngā rau manu, he anga pāua kī i te kōkōwai mō ngā mahi tā, me ētahi pāhara kāpia kakara-reka.

He tirohanga ki te oranga uki o ngā iwi o Te Tonga kei ngā kai o te kete. Ko te kaipupuri/kairaranga o te kete he tangata tino matatau ki te kimi, ki te whakarite taputapu raranga, he tino pūkenga hanga i ngā reanga maha o ngā taputapu, mai i ngā korowai, ki ngā whāriki me ngā taonga pūoro.
