Native Voices : Ko au, ko mātau – I am, we are


Dates: 07/10/19 - 15/03/20
Opening: 06/10/19 4:00 pm

A visual art exhibition reinforcing an indigenous legacy, and challenging the impact of a ‘Nations’ Dual Heritage’, on our Māori futures.

KE Design, in partnership with the Tairāwhiti Museum, presents a platform for indigenous dialogue through art, responding to and challenging the 250th Captain Cook commemorations.

In NATIVE VOICES: Ko au, ko mātau – I am, we are artists reinforce our narrative as tangata whenua (people of the land) calling to remind Aotearoa, the world and ourselves of the truths, realities and impacts of a ‘Nations Dual Heritage on our indigenous futures’. The works by Māori artists speaks of our native histories long before and the legacy we will continue to live far beyond these commemorations.

Our histories through our voices – NATIVE VOICES: Ko au, ko mātau – I am, we are.
