Rimurapa

Pōhā-tītī, storage vessels of preserved muttonbirds, are made up of four natural resources: harakeke (“New Zealand flax”), rimurapa (“bull kelp”), kiri totara (totara bark), and tītī (muttonbirds). Graham “Tiny” Metzger is renowned for his knowledge of pōhā-tītī and its continued application. In this clip he talks about how rimurapa is harvested, processed, and cured to make “kelp bags”, the receptacle that holds preserved tītī.
