He Kohinga Whakaaro: Whānau Episode 4
“I reckon my parents have done a mean job”.
Our three millennium babies come together to reflect on being part of the ‘Whānau’ documentary series. They share what it means to them to be Māori in the new millennium.
This episode is part of “Whānau” (2021) - the latest installment in a very special documentary series following the lives of whānau who had babies in 2000.
We’ve revisited them every seven years and in this update, three of the ‘babies’ invite us back into their lives and to their 21st birthday celebrations. They reflect on their upbringings and what it’s like to be Māori in the 21st century.
“Māori just are funny because we are Māori and it’s built into our culture already.”
“There was a goat that was president.”
“Kapa haka is a way for us to identify who we are and where we come from.”
