"What we're starting to see is more and more moko kauae out there. In the supermarket, on the streets, in the courtrooms."
Hiona Henare is the director of new documentary Ruahine: Stories In Her Skin, which follows two wāhine receiving moko kauae. The 40 minute doco featuring minimal dialogue is part of the Doc Edge International Film Festival, which has moved entirely online for the first time in the wake of Covid.
