Keri-Anne Wikitera (Tuhourangi/Ngati Wahiao/Ngati Whakaue) is currently undertaking research at AUT for her doctoral thesis on ‘Maori Spaces in Foreign Places: The case of Hinemihi o Te Ao Tawhito’. Hinemihi is a meeting house that was located at Tarawera until 1892 (post eruption) when she was moved to Clandon Park, Surrey where she is now cared for by the English National Trust. Hinemihi, like Makereti, has over the years become a site for connection for Maori visiting and living in England and provides another example of how Maori spaces are created and can exist outside of tribal regions.
