The Tītoki is a tree which is commonly referenced in Māori proverbs, phrases, and salutations, although little is known about where it comes from, what it looks like, how it was used, and indeed stories or histories associated with the Tītoki.

Prior to European settlement, the Tītoki tree thrived along the banks of the Te Hēnui river in north Taranaki. Accordingly, its berries were used to anoint the skin and hair of women as a fragrance.

There are currently two trees that are cordoned off and protected by DoC that are along the Te Henui river.

This is a digital children’s book, based on tikanga and kōrero associated with the Tītoki tree. It is told from the perspective of Te Ātiawa, and is targeted at tamariki years 8 through to 12+.
