Audio from the Tiwhanawhana Celebrates Matariki event held at the National Library of New Zealand in Wellington on 29 July 2017. The event involved waiata, a special showing of the Wahine exhibition: Beyond the 'dusky maiden' Ki tua o te 'puhi kiri rauwhero', a showing of selected Maori material by curators of the Lesbian and Gay Archives (LAGANZ) and a community discussion about the role of women for Takatapui (this recording only features the welcome and community discussion). A special thank you to the participants for allowing this event to be recorded and shared.
Tiwhanawhana is a community of Takatapui (Maori of diverse sexualities and genders) who meet regularly in Wellington. Guided by Maori principles and values its purpose is to build community, tell its stories and leave a legacy for the coming generations. Tiwhanawhana welcomes all cultures amongst its community.
