Richard Nunns explores the collection of taonga puoro (musical instruments) artifacts held at the Institute of Cultural and Social Anthropology Georg-August University of Göttingen in Germany. Collected during the three Pacific voyages undertaken by James Cook and Johann and Georg Forster between 1768 and 1780, these 225-year-old artifacts provide a rare insight into the New Zealand cultures James Cook encountered. Richard Nunns will explain the cultural background of these instruments and will demonstrate how to play and handle them.
