Abstract

The collecting of the raw materials - the kelp, the flax, the totara bark – to make a pōhā takes much time and effort. And then there are the muttonbirds (tītī), which have to be caught, plucked and readied for storing. Graham Metzger’s narrative of the intricate processes is written by Hana Pomare for this Māori language edition. The photographs on display show the muttonbirds being pushed into the kelp bag.
