Te Hookioi was the first publication of its kind in Aotearoa. Written, edited and printed from a Maaori perspective, in 1861. The vision is to provide a far-reaching voice for the Kiingitanga and Maaori. To inform, encourage and rally people behind the Kiingitanga movement. The task of interpreting the publication for today’s audience in a contemporary, relevant manner while acknowledging and honouring the whakapapa, legacy and ahurea tuakiri was a complex cultural and aesthetic challenge.
