Maori maintain a deeply spiritual connection with the land of the Rangitikei district, which is enriched by the Maori culture of four distinct tribal collectives. The distant headwaters and hinterlands of the Rangitikei River form the homelands of the confederated hapu of Mokai Patea, in pre-European times the lower Rangitikei River carried canoe traffic, and an important Maori walking track followed the river valley. Marae (meeting places) throughout the region remain the cultural focal points for continuation of Maori customs and language.
The region’s beauty and mystery gives the inspiration for the painting, sculpture and craft of its people, and has given rise to individual galleries and the development of Mangaweka as a renowned art centre. Appreciate the talent of the artists, glass casters, photographers and craftsmen; enjoy the special exhibitions.
