Waiora

By Hone Kouka

Waiora

The year is 1965. A Māori family, recently migrated to the South Island from the NorthIsland’s east cape, prepares to celebrate a birthday with their Pākehā guests.  In this cultural borderland, freshly-forged identities are passports presented for a passage to prosperity.  Yet origins cannot be easily forgotten.

The year is 1965. A Māori family, recently migrated to the South Island from the NorthIsland’s east cape, prepares to celebrate a birthday with their Pākehā guests.  In this cultural borderland, freshly-forged identities are passports presented for a passage to prosperity.  Yet origins cannot be easily forgotten. 

Waiora is compelling, comic, devastating.  Exploring differing interpretations of home and belonging, it addresses, in Kouka’s words, “all of us who have travelled from somewhere else.”
