Tui & Tama’s friend Taniwha is hosting the month of October’s Public Programme!
This month our mascot Taniwha welcomes everyone this October to learn myths and legends.
Do you know what a myth or legend is?
A myth or legend is a story passed on through the generations. It can be based in fact or it can be left up to our imagination whether it is true. In the Waipā district, we have myths about taniwha that live in the rivers, guardians of the forest and shape changers who can take the form of birds.
Taniwha has lots of activities and stories to share with visitors. Come on in this October to create mythical taniwha of your own!
