Artist Statement

Toa Matarau is about developing the over all total warrior attitude, worldview and person that reflects our ancestors without having to borrow from other cultures and influences. It is a concept that develops our own tūpuna (ancestral) design and individual look as ALL Māori and the absolute beauty in this. Accentuating the Māori/Tūpuna [ancestors] in totality and taking it too the pinnacle of what it can represent in our everyday lives in a modern, fresh, innovative an exciting way. This also advocates encompassing the modern world that we live in today but doing that through the worldview of applied ancestral knowledge and using the essence of there knowing and understanding to carry us beyond 2014 and what it means for us today. It means that we can do anything and the potential to obtained the complete skill set of our ancestors is paramount.
