Women’s fashion accessories through the ages
This display tells the story of the Awarua Trust set up by Edna Money and the collection from Niue and Tokelau donated by Ross Ardern the father of Jacinda Ardern.
This model of an outrigger canoe was donated by the Awarua Trust. Ross Ardern arranged to finance a shipment of medical supplies to Tokelau through the Awarua Trust. This vaka was a gift of thanks from the Tokelau, Mr Ardern gave the vaka to the Awarua Trust. It was thought that it would be better kept in the Morrinsville Museum as a tribute to Edna Money for her commitment to the museum and the Awarua Trust.
