Always good to see Hinerangi Puru ( ne Cooper ) , Lee Harris and Moka Puru turn up to a hui , you know things are going to be said , and documented, Lee has probably photographed more of the Ngāpuhi Treaty claims process and other occasions in the north over the years than anyone else, intimate images of her whanau walking the talk. Whaea Hinerangi and matua Moka .... well so much I could say, instead I recommend you google their names and Waka Huia, recently Waka Huia did an episode on each of them, full of beautiful stories, knowledge and some good laughs as well. And in case you needed reminding minister of treaty negotiations for the crown, Ngāpuhi hapū did not cede sovereignty >>>

In Auckland, learning doesn’t end at Uni! New Zealand is a country with a rich history. Coming from the northern part of the United States, I know very little about pacific history. So a day trip to the museum was perfect for me! There’s tons of exhibits to learn about Maori culture, geology of NZ, and much much more! @sabrina_paul7
Teal and orange for days 😂🙏🏼
An exciting new phase of my life and my career is starting to unfold...
This week HBF welcomes Honolulu Biennial 2019 artists Mata Aho Collective from Aotearoa to research their new commission that will be exhibited at HB19 (March 8- May 5, 2019).
For the collective, formed in 2012 by New Zealand–based artists Erena Baker, Sarah Hudson, Bridget Reweti, and Terri Te Tau, tuitui (sewing) is a methodology, and weaving is an aesthetic. Their sewn textiles take a practice primarily realized by women at a domestic scale (the scale of the body) and render it large. For them, sewing is a form of wānanga (a conference or forum) that is integral to customary knowledge, be it genealogy, history, or philosophy; the completed textiles become the forum in which this knowledge is passed down.

Since my son's birth we had kept his placenta in the freezer, with the intention of burying it in the earth on our own land. In New Zealand’s Māori culture, there is an ancient practice of burying the placenta after birth. The Maori word 'Whenua’ (which means both earth and placenta), is the Maori tradition of returning the placenta to the land.
When the land we had been preparing to move to fell through the placenta remained in the freezer - until I just couldn't take it anymore. I felt there was a part of me frozen and nothing could move forward until it was in the earth. So I held a ceremony here, on the land I stand now, the land I was hapu, the land my son has grown from infant to child. We placed the placenta in a basket (one half made by me the other by my son's father), and buried it in the earth, and planted a fruit tree above to give roots and new life.
So no I don't have my own land yet, that little piece of earth to call my own. But I'm at peace with that, because I know I will one day. And now I am no longer frozen in time I am free to move forward and begin a new cycle. 🌱🌳☀️🌏🌙❤️
not the worst spot for a coffee break on the road 😍🌾🌸🌳🌿

rainy weather can be quite annoying when traveling. when you sit in your van for ages. when all the clothes you have won't dry anymore. when everything's gray and reflects your mood. but also it's the rain that grows trees in the greenest green 💚
