Te Ara – Maori Pathways of Leadership

Te Ara is an international touring exhibition showcasing aspects of Maori identity in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It is a Maori story of tribal leadership and it began more than 3000 years ago when the ancestors of the Maori first ventured into the Pacific and continues up to today’s challenges.

The images of Maori and their landscapes were captured by internationally renowned photographer Krzysztof Pfeiffer. They are completed by narratives in the catalogue provided by Paul Tapsell, along with Merata Kawharu and Maori scholars Michael Stevens and Hirini Tane.

Te Ara has been developed out of a New Zealand government FRST-funded research project called Te Wehi Nui a Mamao.
