Piriharakeke tells fascinating stories. You will be captivated by the beauty and wairua of the space. Whether it’s the ancient fishing waka or the intricate, spiritual Taurapa (sternpost) that talk of ancient times. Or the weavings that have experts wondering how it was done, and a Tangiwai carving that was created specifically for the exhibition. Piriharakeke Generation Inspiration Centre is located in Foxton, in Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom.
