    Whakaarahia anō te rā kaihau! Raise up again the billowing sail!

    Te Rā is the last remaining customary Māori sail in the world. Woven from harakeke more than 200 years ago, it has for many years been held in storage at the British Museum in London. Written by Ariana Tikao from the point of view of Te Rā and illustrated by Mat Tait, this book commemorates the homecoming of a treasured taonga.
