In this episode we learn about Waka Huia and how they are used to protect and preserve our precious taonga. We visit MTG Hawke’s Bay Tai Ahuriri to see some very special waka huia and learn how museums are kaitiaki (guardians) of our precious taonga (treasures). We then use Tinkercad to create a 3D model of a waka huia. This episode is designed for students working at levels 1-3 of the NZ curriculum.
