Event Series Event Series: Mahika Kai

Mahika Kai

29/06/2019, 2.00pm2.30pm


For pre-contact Māori, the best times for the cultivation and harvesting of food were marked by bodies visible in the night sky. The passing of years, seasons and months were signalled by prominent stars and the phases of the moon. Join a Museum Guide and take a closer look at how traditional food and natural resources were managed in Te Waipounamu through our displays and see how mahika kai continues today through the lens of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu’s Mahinga Kai films.

Southern Land, Southern People Gallery, Otago Museum, 419 Great King Street, Dunedin
