Tū Tama Wāhine_Webtile.jpg

Tū Tama Wāhine o Taranaki is a Kaupapa Maori development and liberation organisation that is wāhine led and is about whānau revitalisation and decolonisation.

The organisation is celebrating its 30th anniversary and to mark this milestone, they are focussing their work in a unique way – an exhibition of Taranaki wāhine moko kauae by Taranaki Grandmaster of Photography Tania Niwa.

The exhibition captures personal symbols of cultural resistance whilst celebrating the recovery of the art of Pūkauae as a ritual for indigenous healing and regeneration.

“This is about healing ourselves, healing our Tūpuna and healing our whenua; because we are connected, women and land are intimately connected”.
