Haami is a Pouako for Te Whare Whakairo (tutor at The National Wood Carving School). Haami graduated with the 39th intake to the school and has contributed to many projects during his time as a student as well as a member of staff.
The installation of the pou, which form part of the Whakarewarewa Forest Development Project, provides the ability to share the whakapapa, genealogical histories of Ngā Hapū e Toru o Ngāti Whakaue, the tribal grouping who are the tangata whenua of Tītokorangi.
