Pou Kaitiaki

Vector Wero has 110 Pous or posts that run along its two rivers. They represent different Kaitiaki or guardians watching over the whole area and over those who come and go. 

It is said that there are over 100 chiefs looking over each bend of the Waikato River. Rather than name the Pou after the chiefs, we have named them Kaitiaki as guardians over the complex.
