Rangi Tuwhera Open Sky offers a glimpse into the world of Taonga Pūoro or traditional Māori instruments. We have a virtual encounter with a real pūtōrino and can examine the detailed carving on it created by master carver Sir Brian Flintoff. In the experience we are surrounded by Matai trees from whose wood the pūtōrino is made and are in the presence of Hine Raukatauri the Atua (goddess) of music, while the pūtōrino story unfolds around us. We share this treasure with the world by joining traditional skills with contemporary technology.

Kat Lintott (Ngāi Tahu) is passionate about using new technology and creative platforms to empower people in the real world and have a positive impact on themselves and their community.

We at imagineNATIVE acknowledge that this land located on present-day Tkaronto (Toronto) is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We acknowledge the Dish With One Spoon covenant, a treaty whose spirit is one based in collective stewardship and reciprocity. We take the spirit of this covenant to the core of our operations as we bring artists and audiences from many nations across the globe together through our various initiatives and activities.

Please take a moment to think of the land you currently reside upon, wherever you may be, and  acknowledge those who went before and those yet to come.
