 Taonga Tuku Iho: Family Treasures

 13 August 2016 – 9 October 2016 

Everyone has something special in their family that has been handed down from generation to generation. Whether it’s a family tradition, a family trait, a prized heirloom or a memory; people gather and pass down treasures which hold personal significance. Some treasures are sentimental, some are collected for interest and some are held onto for profit. Often the stories that accompany these treasures enrich their significance and can change them from something interesting into something wonderful.

Taonga Tuku Iho: Family Treasures is an exhibition which draws on treasures and their stories from 19 families within the Tairāwhiti region. Aimed at school aged children, the show is diverse in its collection and includes tangible and intangible treasures.

Taonga Tuku Iho: Family Treasures is a fantastic way families can make connections with each other and then share their stories with the wider community. Family stories help to provide valuable perspective and understanding of the past and present. They also help strengthen family ties across the ages.
