Tairangahia a tua whakarere; tātakihia ngā reanga o āmuri ake nei – Honouring the past; inspiring the future

This whakataukī sums up Pouhere Taonga Heritage New Zealand’s important kaupapa. Keeping our places and stories alive is integral to our whakapapa and national identity. It also provides a way to understand our history, different generations and our diverse cultures, traditions, and communities.

Travel online to Te Tai Tokerau Northland to:

  • explore the stories within some of our heritage places
  • meet the people preserving these taonga
  • discover why it’s important to value, respect and preserve our past.


All the field trip material including video, a Google Earth for Web tour, background support and online quizzes will be available from 12 September 2022.

Sign up to this trip to receive supporting communication and resources from the LEARNZ team, and connect with field trip experts in our live web conferences.
