Created by New Zealand Māori photographer Crystal Te Moananui-Squares in collaboration with New Zealand Māori producer Jo Walsh, Tūhuratanga: Voyage of Discovery is a response to the historical context and interpretation of images, objects and text currently on display in James Cook: The Voyages.

This free display of twenty portraits documents people of Te-Moananui-a-Kiwa (the Pacific Ocean) living in the United Kingdom today. Embodying their ancestors with whom James Cook and his crews first made contact with on the shores of islands in the Pacific, Tūhuratanga: Voyage of Discovery is a celebration of the diverse and respective cultures of Aotearoa New Zealand, Cook Islands, Niue, Wallis and Futuna, Samoa, Fiji, Tokelau, Tahiti, Marquesas and Hawai’i.
