Cook Islands 21sts are all about family, but mine can’t come | 2000s Baby

“21sts are really important in Cook Islands culture.”

Poe Tiare’s 21st is a big deal for her and her whānau. Before she reaches this milestone, she wants to connect with the Māori side of her Cook Island/Māori whakapapa.

Meanwhile, her step father is coming from Raro to Pōneke to bring her key – will he make it in time?
