Carved Posts Come Home [Pouwhenua]

This image was taken (but not used) for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 4th August 1993. "The air was thick with emotion when four Rangitāne pouwhenua (carved stockade posts) were returned home yesterday after an absence of 60 years. Originally from Puketotara Pa, the pouwhenua were considered significant and important taonga for the Rangitāne people. They were the only large Rangitāne carvings still in New Zealand, and four of seven in existence. In 1933, Wiremu Kingi Te Awe Awe presented the carvings to the then Dominion Museum for safekeeping. There they were displayed in the Māori Hall for many years. Today, a delegation from the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa, led by board chairman Sir Hamish Hay and Māori art and history director Cliff Whiting, handed over the carvings on a permanent loan basis to the Manawatu Museum. They will form a major component of the exhibitions in the new Manawatu Museum - Science Centre, opening in February next year. Mr. Whiting said the decision to return the carvings to their area of origin was part of the New Zealand Museum's policy of partnership with other museums. [Pictured] One of the four Rangitāne pouwhenua, returned to the Manawatu yesterday, is unveiled in preparation for transportation to a wing of the Museum's new premises."

Clansmen On Their Way to Expo

Clansmen On Their Way to Expo

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 19th August 1992 "The Tartan Clansmen left last week for Seville in Spain, where they will represent Palmerston North at World Expo 92. First stop is Disneyland where the band will perform for three days. The promoter in Los Angeles told the Clansmen they are the first "Down Under" group to be accepted at Disneyland. From there they move to London and on to Seville, where they arrive by September 10. The group was invited to perform at Seville by Expo co-ordinator Max Cryer, who had been impressed by their performance at Brisbane Expo in 1988. Unfortunately the Clansmen could not get a class A rating, which would have meant their tour would be funded by New Zealand's Expo organisers. So they "had to sing for their supper", said fundraising committee chairman Ian Cruden. The group will promote the region in return for the support they have received. The Clansmen will perform outside the New Zealand Pavilion, entertaining the people lining up to get inside. Mr Cruden said they would only perform for short periods because of the tremendous heat."

[Summer Onions]

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 25th November 1987 "Tired, listless, unemployed? You could need Dole Day Afternoon, an extravaganza of local bands designed to shake life back in to the jaded local music scene. Organised as a joint exercise by the Unemployed Workers' Rights Centre and the Manawatu Employment Resource Centre, Dole Day Afternoon features local bands Summer Onions, The End, Arnold Splendor (featuring Max Satchell and Greg Malcolm-Boelee) and One Leg Too Short. Organiser Robin Gauld said he hopes tomorrow's bash will enable unemployed people to party without too much expense ($3 on the door), while enjoying some of the more interesting original bands about at present. Those able to skive off work are also welcome. "The entertainment angle is important, but it's also a chance to get everyone together as a group and discuss some of the heavy issues about at present like the threatened cuts in unemployment payments for under-18-year-olds," he said. Gauld says he's hoping to make the event semi-regular, mixing diverse bands at a wide range of venues and generally filling the gap since the demise of the regular Meltdown venue in the city. The venue is the Cafe de Paris, with he first band limbering up at around 1pm. {Photograph] Summer Onions just one of the bands featuring in tomorrow's Dole Day Afternoon.

The information for this image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 9th October 1991 "Gigs at Massey disoriented: Orientation appears rather grim this year… Organisers at Massey say they can't afford the top acts any more. But the issue goes a little deeper than that. Orientation '92 is a departure from the tradition previous organisers fought hard to establish. Consider the many Kiwi bands who have used the sweaty, beer-sodden social hall as a build up for greater things (and record sales) overseas. [The full article can be read on the newspaper microfilm held at the City Library.] Other local bands who need no introduction are Feast of Stevens, Flippin Hippies (formerly Wild Honey Pie), and Lung, who've promised to keep their clothes on."
