The Museum partnered with the Taumata Māreikura, a group made up of some of Aotearoa’s most skilled and experienced weavers, as part of a Mātauranga Māori approach, to explore the textiles and other items within the Museum’s collection.

Te Papa has many taonga Māori with great tales to tell. In each episode of He Paki Taonga i a Māui, we take one of these taonga and tell its story. At the start of each episode, our pūkōrero introduces us to the taonga starring in that episode, then over animated illustration, our storyteller tells the tale of the taonga. It’s an engaging and memorable way for tamariki to learn about taonga and their own history.
