We would like to acknowledge and extend our thanks to Hika Pene who provided the Concepts/Guardians and meanings for each team, and Artist Hemi Rangiuia (Ngāti Tukorero, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Tuwharetoa), who designed the uniform graphics.
The concept of the 4 winds across Aotearoa was to keep a connection to our four teams while also holding their own unique identify. Each top has a Guardian, Taonga, Mammal that reflects our Touch Blacks Culture & Values along with this fresh new approach as we strive forward in testing times.
