Whilst these kete come from a customary Māori base, they incorporate elements of value from other cultures. Similarly so do we as an indigenous people. The challenge for us as a people is to identify those elements that enhance our indigenous identity and release those that are not in our individual or collective interest. Pūtake invites us to look at the fabric of identity we weave in our daily lives.”

'Matariki' by Veranoa Hetet. A reversible cloak made entirely of flax (unprocessed, piupiu and fibre). The top woven panel has the Matariki pattern on one side and Waahi rua on the reverse. Both patterns represent those who have passed on. When wearing this cloak one is embraced by them. The piupiu at the bottom gives weight to the cloak and represents the gifts handed down by our ancestors - anchoring Māori in tradition.
