Hupara were an important resource for ancient Maori which were utilised in social protocols, game play, skill, strength and conditioning exercises. They were also used by tribes in psychological healing practices and as spiritual sanctuaries.Because of their relevance today, in a... world which is increasingly searching for alternatives to mining and fossil fuel- based products, hupara are enjoying a profound renaissance around the country in playgrounds, outdoor classrooms, and in recreation and leisure centres. Hupara are an important teaching resource which can inspire intellectual inquiry, create social harmony, encourage artistic expression, promote conservation, empower concepts of kaitiakitanga and augment physical education & wider school curricula development. Te Mara Hupara is ideally suited for educationalists, developers of parks and reserves, conservationists, promoters of Maori cultural heritage and provides teachers and students with power-packed information from which to develop cross- curricula studies through the arts, technology, maths, HPE, science and social studies.
