Tēnei te hā. Tēnei te whanake. Tēnei te whakaoranga. He mea whakakotahi e tō rātou koronga ki ngā āheinga o te harakeke, ka whakamātauria e te tokowhā ringatoi nei, ngā rauemi mā ngā whiri taketake, me ngā whiri o te inamata. Ko tā te kaupapa nei, he whakaū i te whanaungatanga me te mana rangatira, e hono anō ai ki ngā taonga tuku iho, me te whakaaro anō ki te anamata whānui o te Māoritanga.
This is breath. This is growth. This is healing. Woven together by their shared interest in the active potential of harakeke, the hands of four Ringatoi explore the material through customary and contemporary practice. He Rito integrates whanaungatanga and reclamation, reconnecting with taonga and imagining expansive futures of māoritanga.
