Hogg Taonga

Hogg Taonga
The University of Waikato has on permanent loan, a kiwi feather cloak, a piupiu and tipare (headband), which had been the property of the late Mr. Tasman Rangi Hogg. Mr J. Day, a descendant of the owner of the cloak and Mrs. Hogg presented the taonga to the university in 1975.

The kiwi feather cloak is dotted with kereru feathers, and has taniko borders of muka and worsted wool. Long fowl feathers are attached to the central top edge.
