“Moana Rētō, Tohora manawaroa”
“The ocean depths summons the strongest of heart”

Rukutohorā 2022 – the 30 Year Celebration of the signing of the Fisheries Deed of Settlement.

Join us for a day as we take a breath and mark this significant occasion; connect with iwi and the Māori Fisheries sector, hear from speakers who negotiated the ‘Sealord Deal’ and from thinkers and doers who are imagining a better future for our moana.

Rukutohorā symbolises the long breath required to dive deep into the oceans, seeing the unseen, feeling the unknown and seamlessly gliding into another world of opportunity. It reflects this auspicious time – celebrating the last 30 years and turning towards the next 30 years.

Te Papa, Te Whanganui-a-Tara
Thursday 22 September 2022
