Raranga Rerenga Rauropi | Weaving Biodiversity in our own Backyards

This is a community art project based in the Whau district of Tamaki makaurau (Auckland) Aotearoa (New Zealand). Based on 3 Matauranga Māori concepts Māramatanga (enlightenment), Kaitiakitanga (guardianship) & Manākitanga (respect). We collaborated with community gardens to explore these concepts in practical applications on the whenua (land) Raranga Rerenga Rauropi.
