Our Education team have created a variety of teaching resources to support the learning of your students at school or at home.
He Tohu Activity
When rangatira Māori signed Te Tiriti o Waitangi | The Treaty of Waitangi, some of them used a part of their tā moko (facial tattoo) as their tohu (mark or sign). Use this activity for students to create their own tohu. What tohu would you design to represent yourself or your whānau?
