The National Library, Toi M?ori and the Dutch Embassy, have come together to present a film tracing an extraordinary partnership. Directed by Jan Bieringa, Te Hono ki Aotearoa: The Link to Aotearoa, follows the journey of a waka taua (ceremonial canoe) hewn from a 600-year old Kauri and ceremonially gifted on permanent loan, to the Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden, Holland. Admission is free, as are the refreshments and informal discussion after the film. Be sure to check out the magnificent He Tohu on the pre-event tour.
