Haere mai.

E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā iwi o te ao.

Nei rā te mihi ki a koutou, nau mai, haere mai ki te whakāturanga hou nei a He Tohu.

E kore ngā taonga nei e rangatira, ki te noho wahangu,

Nō reira, haere mai koe, piki mai koutou ki He Tohu.

A declaration.
A treaty.
A petition.

Welcome and thank you for visiting the new exhibition He Tohu.

Without people to talk about them, without people to care for them, these taonga will be silenced.

We welcome you warmly and invite you to enjoy He Tohu.

Visit He Tohu

Kōrero: Telling our story

Ki a au nei he kaupapa nui te Tiriti o Waitangi. He kaupapa i tūhonohono i ngā iwi o Aotearoa. Āe, ki a au nei ki tēnei reanga he mea hirahira kia mōhio tātou ki ngā hītori. Ki ngā kōrero o te Tiriti, hei oranga mō te iwi, mō te motu whānui o Aotearoa.
