On Saturday the 8th of February 2020, Pūkaha was gifted back to Rangitāne o Wairarapa as part of the iwi’s historic settlement redress. Pūkaha was a key piece of redress for Rangitāne for its significance to their tribal identity. It is a 942-ha unfenced reserve in the Wairarapa/Tararua that has huge conservation importance for the nation and is of cultural significance for Rangitāne. Look for more information each month for what’s on at our local treasure.
