A child listens to Koro and Grandma as they weave a tale about the life and times of the ancient puriri tree Taketakerau, the settlement and development of New Zealand, and world events that happened over the last 2000 years.
Taketakerau still lives in a fine stand of native bush in the Hukutaia Domain, ten kilometres inland from Opotiki, in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
