Matthew McIntyre-Wilson – A tatua was to a Mori warrior what a holster is to a cowboy. It’s a type of belt made to carry a weapon, and for Mori they were woven from flax. Now traditional tatua have been recreated in silver. TALES FROM TE PAPA is a fascinating new series of mini-documentaries for TVNZ 7 that showcase many of the exciting, wonderful and significant pieces that are held in our national museum. Tales from Te Papa is commissioned by TVNZ 7, in partnership with Te Papa.
