Title: Huia Te Taiao 

Artist: Awhina Osborne

 Iwi: Ngāti Raukawa

Description:  One of a series of Atua Wāhine (Māori Goddesses) Māori anime style. An ideal gift for children but suitable for people of all ages

Artist Statement:  A contemporary goddess designed to represent kaitiaki, those who care for the environment. The three Huia feathers from the now extinct Huia bird represent rangatiratanga.  Huia Te Taiao champions the work of tamariki and rangatahi engaged in their communities, on marae and in kura, who uphold the mana of our taiao (environment) through responsible actions such as Parakore (Zero Waste practices – recycling) and maara kai to name a few.
