This is a programme to develop the story of telling through tukutuku. This traditional Māori artform abounds with deep layers of whakapapa, history, innovation, healing, storytelling and more. We intend to use the Tukutuku Toi Kit as a tool to reduce Māori suicide by giving nope, releas, reciprocity and a sense of connection to Te Ao Māori. We believe understanding this taonga with its traditional Māori patterns and themes connecting that imagery with modern life our people now live, will break down barriers and create pathways to better communication and well being.
