Explore mātauranga (knowledge systems), stories, themes, representations, embedded deep within Te Ao Māori.

About this Event

Until the middle of the 20th century Karangahape Road was the only street in central Auckland with a Māori name, as it predates the European settlement. Symonds Street and Karangahape Road follow main ridges forming part of an extensive walking route used by Māori to reach the Manukau Harbour. This route was known as Te Ara o Karangahape – The Path of Karangahape.

Te Awa i Te Pō reflects the underlying waterways that connect underground as historical and geographical features that represent the social and cultural identity of Karangahape Road.

This walking tour explores mātauranga (knowledge systems), stories, themes, representations, embedded deep within Te Ao Māori and reflected through an artistic, urban, architectural, contemporary presence within Tāmaki Makaurau.
