ASKEW AT POHUKAINA STREET

Mural by ASKEW ONE in 233 Hawaii Loa St

Painted by Askew of New Zealand. This is the story of the Tuhoe Iwi who are currently serving time after a unbelievable series of events that played out over a period of 5 years. It goes back to the time of the Treaty of Waitangi, which they refused to sign – as a result they were heavily persecuted, their land was confiscated via the scorched earth method and it’s a contentious issue that has continued until this day. More info can be found here. The mural is located on Pohukaina and Cooke street.
