New signs

Waikato Times - - News -

At­trac­tive new signs il­lus­trat­ing the story of Hamil­ton’s orig­i­nal Ma¯ori in­hab­i­tants will be un­veiled by lo­cal mana whenua at the Kirikiriroa Re­serve to­mor­row. Kauma¯tua from hapu¯ with his­toric ties to the area will bless the two in­ter­pre­ta­tion pan­els that ex­plain the his­tory of Kirikiriroa Pa¯. The mod­ern colour­ful de­signs fea­ture artist im­ages of Kirikiriroa Pa¯, which over­looked the river be­tween mod­ern day Bryce and Lon­don Streets, as it would have ap­peared in the early 1800s. Un­veil­ing will hap­pen at 8.45am to­mor­row morn­ing at the river end of Lon­don Street.
