Te Uare Tāoka o Hākena - Hocken
Tapa Whenua – Naming the landThe wealth of information within the maps and manuscripts on display in the Hocken foyer, were created by Māori in the post-European era. The Māori who authored these maps and manuscripts provided information about the land via a conversation, a korero. It was the supporting richness that existed within the oral tradition that embedded the layers of information within the land, making the Māori landscape a human landscape filled with stories.
