“The Māori language is important to me, but Māori traditions and the Māori way of life. That’s my world.”

About this series

‘Whānau’ (2021), is the latest instalment in a very special documentary series following the lives of whānau who had babies in 2000.

We’ve revisted 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.
