Kerikeri High School

Region: Tai Tokerau

Art form: Film

Project name: Narratives of Ngāti Rehia

Project information:

Tenei au te mokai nei a aku Matua Tāpuna
Kua ngaro i te tirohanga kanohi
Ko te rarangi maunga, tu te po, tu te ao
Ko te rarangi tangata, ka heke, ka heke, ka heke
He maha oku hapā, kei ko, kei ko, kei ko
Tenei au ka taatai ake nei ki toku Ngāti Rāhiatanga
Me tona rohe otae e tu tonu nei ona tohu

This is I, the descendant of my ancestors
who have all departed

My mountain stands eternal
Mankind passes on
I have many connections to all subtribes
But my Ngāti Rāhiatanga is constant
And so are my land and sea boundaries

This project stems from the vision of our school and aims to increase student engagement and promote equitable outcome for our Māori students, engaging them by using the narratives of our local iwi and hapū as the basis for a collaborative film-based project for our Senior Visual Arts students. 

The creative aim is to use the medium of film to produce a series of student-led movies that share the stories of the people and places from the area we live in. Students will visit sites of significance to film scenes and will interview whānau, kaumātua and kuia both on location and here at school. Students will engage in an authentic creative experience, working collaboratively to plan, produce, film, and edit their own videos.

Project starting: February 2021
