Mā ngā huruhuru ka rere te manu

It is the feathers that enable the bird to fly

Te Awe means "White Feathers" in te reo Māori, and our meeting rooms are named after some of our most precious birds:

  • Huia — the now extinct huia has long had iconic significance in New Zealand because of its beauty. The white-tipped tail feathers were a revered taonga (treasure) for Māori.
  • Tūī — the tūī has an exceptional vocal range, from harsh squawks, clicks and whirrs to bell-like melodies. Part of their range is beyond human hearing, so in the middle of a song they can seem to fall suddenly silent.
