Tagata Uli, knowledge of the past, the ancestor skull is fully encircled by a flower Kahoa, made by Kilistina Nafe and gifted to the artist on a visit to an Auckland primary school to witness the impact of cultural practice and indigenous knowledge on a younger generation. The Kahoa is bright and constructed from synthetic material. The cultural skill that is being passed on has evolved, to survive and suit its new environment. We cannot live in the past, but we can take the knowledge with us.ENQUIRE
