E Hina e! E Hine e!
Exhibition open from Saturday 14 September 2019
Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato
E Hina e! E Hine e! explores the contemporary relevance of female Maaori and Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) akua/atua (ancestors). Focusing on our profound connections and told through contemporary and traditional taonga (treasures), oratory, and visual storytelling, this exhibition celebrates the female essence.
We honour ngaa atua/akua waahine, the divine feminine, embodied in the natural environment, to illuminate a pathway toward a more sustainable future.
Developed by Dr Nālani Wilson-Hokowhitu (Kanaka Maoli), Dr Aroha Yates-Smith (Te Arawa, Tainui, Horouta, Takitimu, Mataatua), and curator Poutiaki Whakataki Maree Mills (Ngaati Tuuwharetoa), this exhibition draws from their research and collective commitment to mana waahine.
