Te Rangihaeata was a visionary, poet, warrior, and revered leader of Ng?ti Toa Rangatira. This VR experience imagines a physical and spiritual journey taken by Te Rangihaeata in the early 1800s on the eve of great change for Ng?ti Toa. We join him as he travels across Te Moana o Raukawa in a waka returning to his home on Mana Island. In the fading light of day Kopa (a white owl – Kaitiaki of Ng?ti Toa) appears to Te Rangihaeata with a warning. Reaching his whare, Te Rangihaeata is confronted by a vision of the future, a future beyond his imagining where the landscape is wrenched, torn, and ripped from his people. He must respond to this threat and what it means for generations to come.
