TUIA 250 VOYAGE

As we recognise 250 years since the first onshore meetings between Māori and Europeans Tuia 250 encourages discussion and debate about – what brought us together, the challenges we face as a nation and how we can weave our cultures and values into a shared future we will be proud to leave for future generations. 

Tuia – Encounters 250 is about the people and place of Aotearoa New Zealand.  The commemoration encourages kōrero (discussion) and debate, reflection and contemplation that enables a more balanced telling of our stories, so that we speak openly about our histories and bring a broad range of perspectives to the stories we will tell of this place we call home.

The Tuia 250 Voyage will take the form of a flotilla of vessels – waka hourua, va’a tipaerua, heritage vessels and their crews sailing to and engaging communities throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, between October and December 2019. The voyage flotilla will promote the exceptional feats of Pacific, Māori and European voyaging that brought us together, while providing an opportunity to reflect on our complex history of migration and settlement, and a platform for us to think about how we navigate the future together.
