Pete’s Pakeha Pou-Pou goes on display at Kaitaia’s new Te Ahu Community Centre

After a year of carving, Pete’s Pakeha Pou-Pou has finally been erected in Kaitaia’s new Te Ahu Community Centre. The Northland Age were there to cover the unvieling, producing this story.

A recent guest of ours, Max Withey of New Zealand – North to South, has also written about the pou on his site. For that story click here

Below are links to a couple of videos where Pete talks us through the images on the carving.
