This is me on Titirangi Maunga just yesterday 16/09/20 not only celebrating Maori Language week but also celebrating life itself. I can see Turanga / Gisborne with a 360 degree view. I have been climbing this hill since I could walk and the view is always different to me. I can embrace my Maori identity and embrace the beauty of being Maori. I am proud to be Maori and a strong Maori Woman too. At the back of me is a monument/map that traces the voyage of Maori first arriving in Turanga from Tahiti. I have included a link for further information. https://www.tupapa.nz/ Tupapa - historic interpretations Tupapa - bilingual historic interpretations includes 2 view shafts 3D maps, one on the Turanganui riverside and one on Titirangi summit; 10 pou (markers) and a website and mobile app that share the tangata whenua stories of iwi arrival and settlement and great navigators. Developed by a partnership of the 4 Turanga iwi, people can take self-guided walk that connects sites from Waikanae Beach to Cook Landing Site and Titirangi Reserve. Go to the Tupapa website(external link) and download the app.
