Dear Haereata, Thank you for your kind words. I look forward to the day you visit the museum. Kind regards, Dirk Van Tuerenhout

Hi. My name is Haereata and I love the poem. Highly impressed that you will have a permanent Indian exhibition. I am from New Zealand (Aotearoa) and I am an indigenous Māori. My tribe is Waikato who are one of four Iwi (tribe) groups from our ancestral canoe called Tainui. I hope one day to visit the Museum to experience the exhibition. Kind regards.
