Guarding the Family Silver

Television (Full Length) – 2005

Once we got into Māori culture, we realised there was also strength and there was the whole concept of warriors that were behind it and we thought, “Wow. That has an awful lot to do with what our trucks really mean”.
– Patrick Schiavone, Design Director, Ford USA
When I look back, I still find it unbelievable. I couldn’t even use my own name.
– Moana Maniapoto
All of this cultural debate, for me, is about what the family silver is. It happens, probably, to be the family pounamu.
– Minister of Culture and Heritage Judith Tizard
