Kura Tawhiti Pou Whenua

The pou whenua were installed as part of a significant upgrade to protect the cultural values of Kura Tawhiti and celebrate the important site, in collaboration between Ngāi Tūāhuriri whānui and the Department of Conservation/Te Papa Atawhai (DOC).

The three pou whenua are part of an upgrade to the site, along with new information panels to better narrate the Ngāi Tūāhuriri/Ngāi Tahu history in the area. Ngāi Tūāhuriri is the local hapū, holding rangatiratanga over Kura Tawhiti/Castle Hill.
