Interactive Kawakawa Tree

[Please note this is draft format only]

Kawakawa was chosen to represent the research as it has incredible healing properties and we believe this research serves as a foundation to reinvigorate and heal the Katikati community.

indicate interactive areas on the tree. They contain more information and video content about certain areas of the research.
There are three sections of the tree; past, today and tomorrow.
The Roots of the tree (the past) come from Tangata Whenua and other settling cultures such as European settlers.
The trunk of the tree is built from the four limbs identified by the research as paths that connect communities:
  • Youth Wellbeing
  • Service to Community
  • Natural Environment
  • Intercultural
The branches are then formed with pivot points from the research included as the nodules along the branches.
Leaves highlight key findings. Some leaves are falling and some are attached depending on whether the finding supports a flourishing community or are aspects that need addressing.
At the top of the tree are the opportunities for our community – representing the “tomorrow” for the Katikati community.
