Flashback: Tales and Treasures of Taranaki



Puke Ariki Social History Curator Andrew Moffat has been on a hard-case treasure hunt.

The author of Flashback: Tales and Treasures of Taranaki let the objects, images, archives and taonga Māori in Puke Ariki’s heritage collection take him on a journey of discovery.
The result is a collection of short, easy-to-read tales that are the ‘back stories’ of Taranaki’s past – some which had lain untold for years until Andrew tracked them down, dusted them off and brought them into the light.
Flashback: Tales and Treasures of Taranaki is available at the Puke Ariki Museum Shop (RRP$50) and online through Huia Publishers.
