Warren Pohatu is a graphic designer and artist with a strong passion for his culture. Originally from the east coast of the North Island, Warren now lives in West Auckland - Warren is Ngai Tamanuhiri, with links to Ngati Porou, Ngati Kahungunu, Rongowhakaata and Te Aitanga-a-Mahaki. His blog posts cover a variety of interesting subjects - NZ Gang history, Whakapapa, Ranginui... my favourite is 'The Rock', "Our favourite shark fishing rock was called Te Kaupapa and it was situated about half way along the northern face of Te Kuri about 400 meters from Papatewhai. There is an ancient pa site called Tunga-Kaka directly above it and they were probably using this fishing spot..."
