Searching for our Tupuna

Hora Hora - Primary

The children at Hora Hora Primary walked in the forest above their school and found the remains of a civilization. They found well worn paths with hundreds of kumara pits dotted along the cliff tops forming a huge fortress. They wondered about the people who had lived there. So they visited their local Marae, Kaka Porowini and listened to the stories told by their Kaumatua about the carvings and tukutuku panels. These are their stories.
