How do you heal from intergenerational trauma as the result of a genocide that people refuse to acknowledge? Asking for a friend… #YesWeAreGoingThere
Moko is stuck between a rock and a hard place. She feels that a stronger grounding in her identity will help her heal from personal trauma, but the more she learns, the more she finds there’s so much work to do.
Join Moko on her quest to discover the truth of her origin story, and help her to stay on the path to becoming the wahine toa she was born to be.
I want wāhine Māori to come and feel seen, heard and empowered. This show is for us.
