A visual, interactive interpretation of the Hearts and Minds of Katikati research
The community led the research to five main limbs which are represented in the adjacent tree graphic, and explored further in the written report. Kawakawa was chosen as the tree to represent the research as it’s heart shaped leaves have many healing properties. The researchers believe Hearts and Minds of Katikati serves as a foundation to bring a sense of healing and reinvigoration to the Katikati community.
A number of videos were captured during the research project
