So awesome to be heading to Toronto today. My film The Pa Boys is screening at ImagineNATIVE film festival and then at the Hawaiian International Film Festival. It’s such an honour. I’ve just checked the weather, as you do before travel. Toronto is 10C and Hawaii is 28C. So what to pack, lol. Should be a lot of fun…..you can check out the festival programmes here
Soon to be destroyed to make way for a motorway. To me, progress would mean not destroying natural environments, ancestral land and archaeological sites for a new highway. There were other options but no. The powers that be still see Maori land as exploitable, because to them it’s just sitting there doing nothing. Well it actually is doing something. It is preserving the land, flora and fauna and our people who lived and died on this land. Believe it or not, some people still hold things as sacred. The dead, the environment and the history of place are all sacred.
I’m usually taking photos of Kāpiti Island, this time was lucky enough to spend a night.
Foreshore Kāpiti Island
Kāpiti has been a nature reserve/bird sanctuary since the 1890’s. The Kākā is one of our native parrots. Clever and a bit too friendly
The korimako (bellbird).
Manaaki one of our hosts seeing us off. Amazing host and a place to stay….
