Te Tuhi o te Whenua: Pakohe Unearthed, coming soon at Nelson Provincial Museum

Te Tuhi o te Whenua: Pakohe Unearthed
22 June – 6 October

Discover a story as old as stone as you step into ‘Te Tuhi o te Whenua: Pakohe Unearthed.’

Immerse yourself in the sounds, stories, and colours of Pakohe, also known as argillite, a strong and versatile stone significant to Te Tauihu (the top of the South Island).

Experience the world of Pakohe, from its ancient roots to its contemporary revitalisation, and gain insight into the tools, methodology, trade and tikanga surrounding its use.

This remarkable exhibition, curated in partnership with Ngāti Kuia he Iwi Pakohe with guidance from the eight iwi of Te Tauihu, is not to be missed.
