Manu Tukutuku Workshop

Saturday 7 July, 10:00am4:00pm


The creation of Manu Tukutuku (traditional Māori kites) is a cultural practice that has been associated with the rise of Puaka and Matariki for centuries in Aotearoa.

Join Ngāi Tahu kaiako Wetere Home and Rachel Solomon-Gould for a demonstration of the techniques and mātauraka (knowledge) used to create a large Manu Tukutuku, then make your own small version with raw materials gathered from the ecosanctuary. This is a fun, family-friendly event where participants can immerse themselves our local Ngāi Tahu culture in celebration of Te Tau Hou, the Māori New Year. Nau mai, piki mai!
