    Event description

    Matariki has a strong connection to our taiao and natural world, reminding us to give thanks for our freshwater, saltwater, winds and rains.

    Join Puke Tīmoti as he discusses Tipuārangi - the Matariki star associated with all that lives and grows up in the trees. This kōrero will discuss manu rangatira, with an emphasis on kereru and the four P's: prepare, provision, preserve and prestige. 

    Puke Timoti is a Kairangahau (Ecologist) at Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research and works at the intersection of mātauranga Māori and western science. Raised in Ruatāhuna at the heart of Te Urewera, Timoti conducts research on biocultural systems, emphasising the preservation of indigenous knowledge and practices. His research focuses on understanding how ecological and human factors impact wildlife populations and associated cultural systems. Timoti holds significant positions within the New Zealand Conservation Authority, Tūhoe Tuawhenua Trust and Te Mana o te Taiao monitoring.

    Throughout June, guest speakers will chair a weekly series of Matariki talks about Māori kai practices connected to taonga from the Te Papa collection.
