How do you think our ancestors developed harakeke dyes (such as hīnau, tanekaha and raurekau)? What observations and experiments do you think our ancestors made so that they could develop harakeke dyes? How was the method passed down from one generation to the next? Who was responsible for this?
Ask your whānau and kaumatua if they know of other ways that your tūpuna dyed harakeke and include this information in your presentation. Your presentation could be a report, a story or a drama.
