A Whakapapa quilt exhibition is opening at the end of August in the Sami Museum in the Arctic circle in Oslo.

Maungarongo (Ron) Te Kawa of Ngāti Porou is the artist behind the work who was given an art residency by the Scandinavian Craft Council.

He speaks to Jesse about the connection with the tangata whenua near the north pole.
