Types of tukutuku designs
These diagrams show some of the most common tukutuku patterns and their names (although names vary from tribe to tribe). In more recent times, tukutuku panels have also included representational designs such as the kiwi and whare.
Introducing Maori Lifestyles
This blog provides a visual-verbal snapshot of Maori culture and contemporary Maori lifestyles in modern New Zealand. It presents my own experiences and observations of Maori culture and is not intended in anyway to be the definitive view on all things Maori, but rather an introduction for those who want to know more about Maori culture and its place in everyday bicultural New Zealand.
