Te Pou Arahi - Traditional Storytelling

Students from local schools Nga Kakano O Te Kaihanga and Sunderland School worked with Project Twin Streams and Te Kawerau a Maki carver, Sunnah Thompson, to turn an old burnt-out stump into a colourful identity marker on Henderson Creek.

The students created pictures of stream creatures, and the drawings – along with representation of the native plants found directly around the stump – were carved onto the tree. The students were then invited to paint the carvings.
