Mau Moko for Our Auckland 2_wt1rmagj.jpg

Mau moko describes tangata whenua who wear moko kanohi, traditional facial markings. Moko exists in many different shapes and forms and has evolved extensively over the years in Aotearoa. Moko is a common practice across many indigenous cultures, and this kaupapa seeks to explore what it means for tangata whenua in Aotearoa today.

Mau Moko is an exhibition that explores 5 unique tangata that are mau moko. From reconnecting with whakapapa, to following tohu, signs - this kaupapa explores the 'why' behind moko kanohi, through the lens of taanetanga & waahinetanga.
