About

Te Ra 2019

Project 2018-05-04 12:15:15 +1200

The last known Māori sail left in the World, Te Ra, was thought to have been collected by Captain Cook in the late 1700's. For many years we have been discussing bringing the knowledge of this sail back to NZ, and practising skills needed to begin such a challenge.

Our Pledge Me photo shows Ruth at our first viewing in 2010 .It was this first opportunity to see Te Ra that sparked our passion for the project. The 2019 visit will be an intense focus on researching the details of the sail so we can recreate it faithfully once we are back in NZ. 

Almost 100 years ago, Te Rangi Hiroa laid down a wero to recreate the sail for NZ, before the knowledge and skills are forever lost. No one to date has taken up this challenge, until now! Our vision is to recreate Te Rā in response to Te Rangi Hiroa’s  wero. 

2019 is the also the 250-year commemoration of Captain Cook’s voyage, so we are excited to be on such a wonderful journey of discovery and revival of the skills in re-creating such a taonga.

Our project will continue once we are back in New Zealand, putting our research to use in practising the weaving techniques, creating the fine details of the sail, until we have a full sized replica. We will also be recording our journey through photos and videos, writing for journals and a photographic book of our historic learning journey. A momentous journey for us all!

KOAST ...(Kerikeri Open Art Studio Trail) Labour Weekend 2018

27/10/2018 at 11:38 AM

Bright and sunny Labour weekend 2018 saw Kaikohekohe weavers as guest artists at the annual KOAST trail at Rewa's village. We had a fabulous weekend at a lovely spot overlooking the river, the Stone Store and Kemp House. Weaving outside with a view like that made it a great space to chat with all our visitors as well as exhibit and sell our weaving. Thanks to lots of weaving donated from our Pa Te Aroha whanau, funds were raised to help our travellers on their trip to England.
