About this block

This block is also known as the “Taitokerau Block” as it is made up of panels made for people from the Taitokerau region in Northland.

Before assembly, each panel was taken to North Cape where they were fluttered in the breeze to release the spirits of those whose memory they celebrate before being taken to the Titoki Marae where they were joined to form this block.
