Taonga pounamu o ēnei rā

Taonga pounamu o ēnei rā

I tapaina tēnei pounamu ko Matariki, mō te kāhui whetū ārahi i te mātahi o te tau Māori. Hei te marama o Hune huaki ai te tau o te ao Māori. E ai ki tētahi kōrero he whāea a Matariki me ana tamāhine tokoono. Mai anō i te paunga o te rau tau 1900 ki te tōmuatanga o te rau tau 2000, kua rahi haere ngā taonga pounamu kei te orohia. He nui ngā taonga toi ka taketake mai i te ao Māori. Nā ngā mīhini orooro, pīataata o ēnei rā, ka tareka ngā whakanikoniko rawe rawa atu i te pounamu.
