HERITAGE TOGETHER KOTAHITANGA
A Heritage Journery - Western Bay of Plenty
Where our cultural heritage began:
Kupe then the waka migrations from Tākitimu, Mātaatua and Te Arawa which formed the emergence of our Western Bay of Plenty whānau, hapū and iwi. Then from the late 18th and early to mid 19th Century came the whalers, the sealers, and adventurers and from there came the European, Asian and Pacifica settlements - all of which have laid their footprints upon the Western Bay of Plenty whenua.
It's time to hear the varied stories from our very beginnings through to the many differing cultural stories of all those who now call Western Bay of Plenty home.
From those first waka our hapū/iwi today are:
Takatimu: Ngāti Ranginui.
Mataatua: Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Pūkenga, Ngā Pōtiki.
Te Arawa: Waitaha, Taupika, Ngati Makino, Ngati Whakaue.
