KIA ORA KOUTOU

We're finally building the long awaited indigenous artist website jammed packed full of your voice.

 

You're invited to contribute - but yes we will need a few things from you to get started. This is just the beginning of the journey, and the team here at Te Tuhi Mareikura Trust will endeavor to respectfully create an educational resource for all of us to use.

Your voice is your contribution to the revitalisation of your practice in the public forum

 

You might be also interested to know that not everything you provide will be for public information, their will also be membership pages strictly for access by indigenous practitioners. In majority the public information will be oriented around your artist profile and a general overview to educate of the many different indigenous practices relative to their origin. Through an approved membership, you'll have further access to communications, open discussions, share and korero about progressions, create a community solely for indigenous practitioners all over the world - connecting us all back together.

Well there one way of communicating indigenous art forms and their make up to a wide audience of people. The revitalisation of many cultural artforms is largely informed by resource, education, and practitioners.

These videos will be added to your portfolio as well as artforms arranged by indigenous culture.

Areas you could discuss:

  • How long you have practiced

  • Your motivations

  • A short history on your culture in regards to your practice

  • Origins of your indigenous practice

  • The effects of western society on indigenous practice, i.e. cultural appropriation
