Eating Pork'n'Puha with Chopsticks

Television (Full Length) – 2007

This documentary follows four generations of the Lee family, whose whakapapa includes Ngāti Mahuta and Chinese.  Academic and te reo speaker Jenny Lee-Morgan explores the forging of the two cultures through the marriage of her Chinese grandfather and Māori grandmother. Lee-Morgan's family talk about facing racism, fitting in to a Pākehā world and how it feels to be a Chinese-Māori New Zealander. Family members travel back to Southern China to visit relatives and experience a world where they suddenly "blend in". Lee-Morgan's brother Peter worked on the documentary, including filming and editing.

I felt Māori at high school, my friends were Māori and I was just on a daily basis involved with Māori things ... I think I knew I was Māori more than I knew I was Chinese.
– Peter Lee reflects on his identity as a teenager
