Inquiry: Current Events | Pou Whenua Poles, The 1975 Maori Land March, and The Bastion Point Occupation

This week, we have been learning about New Zealand current events. These are events such as the Maori land march, and the Bastion Point Occupation. But our main focus was on Pou Whenua poles. If you don't know what they are, they are sort of like totem poles, although there are quite a few differences between the two. Pou Whenua poles are carved wooden pillars, that tell stories, and are used by Maori culture to mark territorial boundaries. There were two specific activities to do with this information, although for now I can only show one of the two. One activity that we had done with Pou Whenua Poles was to create a Venn Diagram comparing them to Totem Poles. All of these activities had to be done with a partner. So without any hesitation, Sanujan and I quickly made a pair. In the end, Sanujan and I finished these activities just in time before the deadline.
