Landscape of Northland
The stories that built this project came from people living around the Warawara and Waipoua forests and throughout Northland/Te Taitokerau in the municipalities of Kaitaia, Ahipara, Mitimiti, Pawarenga, Panguru, Kohukohu, Rawene, Opononi, Omāpere, Waimamaku, Waipoua, Kaihū, Dargaville, Matakohe, Mōtatau, Kawakawa, Kerikeri, Paihia, Waitangi, Whangārei, Waitakere and Auckland. While they all first developed on the land Maui caught in the time of creation, today these towns are connected by a web of highways, hillsides, and farmland (fig. 5).
