Te Ara Tapu - Sacred Journeys. Whanganui Regional Museum Taonga Maori Collection

Author(s): Michelle Horwood & Che Wilson

Maori & Pacific

Showcases 150 items of the most interesting and beautiful taonga held by the Whanganui Regional Museum, with text explaining their significance and connections. An accompanying CD contains a catalogue listing of the complete collection of 5,000 items. The structure of the book reflects the framework of a Maori tauparapara or chant, which takes the reader on a journey from the source of the Whanganui River on the central plateau down to the sea. The selected taonga can all be linked into this journey, giving the book a unique Whanganui flavour and authenticity. First published 2008.
