Absolutely agree with M Owens's post. I also lived in NZ and now I miss it so much. Best time of my life. I will be going back.

Brought tears to my eyes now that I'm no longer living in NZ.... and I'm not Māori or had much to do with Māori culture.

So I just found out today that my Great Uncle Mart was part of the team which built the Aotea canoe remembrance arch. He was a plasterer by trade and made all the figures for it.

Taika Waititi has many parents here! What a joyful clip.
The music is superb, but the clip deserves fame beyond your borders.
I'm sharing it with the facebook page of the Australian Screen Directors Authorship Collecting Society; http://www.facebook.com/pages/ASDACS/110831855622483

Fantastic from one who lives between jozi south africa and europe to be re-connected through the power and love of the song and dance of maori - the light in the singer's, children's eyes, the magic of the words the sentiments, the tradition made real in the 21st century to be meaningful for us who were born in NZ ... ... thanks for the inspiration to reconnect to my real home xxx to all
