Image: Cultural Collections celebrate Waitangi Day #5
On the 9th of February, 2013, the Cultural Collections team participated at the Waitangi Day celebrations in Merrylands, Sydney. The organising community group, Nga Uri O Rahiri Inc. approached the Australian Museum, requesting a selection of taonga (treasures) dating from the late 1800s to put on display and information to be shared on the day. These objects provide a glimpse into the Australian Museum’s Maori collections and insights into traditional Maori designs, materials and technologies.
