A timely moment for us to celebrate the tenacity and elegance of the Māori spirit through this display that centres the magazine Te Ao Hou: The New World, published 1952 – 75. In the opening article of the first volume it states that “Te Ao Hou should become like a ‘Marae’ on paper, where all questions of interest to the Māori can be discussed”. This metaphorical approach that sets the intention of the publication is the one that also provides the framework for this display through the pōwhiri process. As it welcomes you onto the marae, so too does it welcome you to engage with the articles and images to celebrate, converse and dwell in the presence of the voices represented in Te Ao Hou.
