Increasingly Auckland local authorities recognise the importance of the Tāmaki tribes. A good example is the role of Te Kawerau-a-Maki at the Arataki Visitors’ Centre in the Waitākere Ranges. This carving at the visitors’ centre represents ancestors of Te Kawerau-a-Maki. The ancestors are, from the top: Tiriwa, Hape, Hoturoa, Maki, Te Kawerau-a-Maki, and Te Au o Te Whenua.
