Whakairo at the Beehive

Parliament, Aotearoa New Zealand 2023




An historic event in the history of Aotearoa New Zealand occurred in 2023, with the installation of whakairo in the form of two pou on the grounds of the NZ Parliament and a pare at the entrance to the Beehive.


The pou were created by members of the Hetet whānau: Len Hetet, Sam Hauwaho and Sonny Davis. Sam and Sonny were also responsible for the carving of the entranceway to the Beehive



These works of art were acknowledged with a dawn ceremony led by local Iwi, Te Atiawa.
