He Paki Taonga

ProductionShed.TV is currently in production for a web series called He Paki Taonga.

The series, created by David Brechin-Smith, features tales about taonga from Te Papa’s Taonga Māori collection, is for tamariki aged 7–11, and will be 100% te reo Māori!

Each story is being told through partially animated illustrations created by young Māori artists. Each episode is led by our pūkōrero, Māui who will be played by a young Māori actor.

He Paki Taonga aims to help kids understand the importance of taonga, and aims to increase understanding of te reo Māori among our tamariki.
