Scan a QR code on the side of two steel pourama (light columns) on the corner of Sale Street and Wellesley Street, and hear a poem by celebrated New Zealand manu kōrero/poet Hone Tuwhare. The poem is recited in both te reo Māori and English by the children of the young men who have led this project, says Auckland Council. Hone Tuwhare (Ngāti Korokoro, Ngāti Tautahi, Te Popoto, Te Uri-O-Hau) remains a national treasure, and stands as one of the most important Māori literary voices of the twentieth century.
