After three decades of journeying with Poutini, Te Kaha now has an understanding of what the tipuna (ancestors) have send forward in time regarding Poutini, Pounamu and Hei Tiki.
This mātauranga that has been entrusted with him is pre-the coming of James Cook and the missionary influence.
When this mātauranga hei tiki is re-seeded back to whānau (family), it creates a legacy of the past, for the present and living, as heirlooms for future bloodlines.
Please contact us directly for future information regarding this process.
