He Tohu

Signatures that shape New Zealand. Shows Patuone and Te Rangi Topeora, offering the pens they signed with.

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.
