This excellent half day outdoor field-trip compliments a research session at the Taranaki Research Centre. It can be done in conjunction with Taranaki Wars or Parihaka: Contested Ground, or on its own. It is a unique opportunity to visit significant Taranaki War sites with an experienced guide.

Listen to the stories and perspectives about significant events that took place at Te Kohia pā and the Pekapeka Block. Students can reflect on how those events and decisions still impact on society today.
