TPTOTA ki Piopiotahi

On Easter weekend, Te Papa Tākaro o Te Arawa, Dr. Ihirangi Heke, Toi Tangata and kaiako from Te Kura o Kaikohe entered into Piopiotahi (Milford Sounds) to run the Routeburn Track.

The journey was not about the distance or 'conquering' the Tarahaka ranges and completing the track.  This experience was about retracing whakapapa connections to a place, recognising different behaviours and characteristics in the environment and testing our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical fitness.
