Te Ahurei O Waikato

Te Ahurei O Waikato

Created by Lyonel Grant, Te Ahurei O Waikato portrays the people of the Waikato.

The central figure is thrusting a sacred stake into the land confirming that it belongs to them and they to it. 
The flowing water acknowledges the spiritual life forces of the Waikato River contained within the canoe shape, linking the Waikato tribe to their ancestors in the Tainui canoe, while the posts represent Waikato sub-tribes.

Te Ahurei O Waikato is located between the Huntly Power Station and the Waikato River.
