"Moko to me is a process of connecting each of us through its practice, to the ancient wisdom of our ancestors, so that their mana and mauri may become centred within our personal spiritual self."
- Julie Paama-Pengelly
Ko te timatanga o te whakaaronui, ko te wehi ki nga Atua, na ratou nei nga mea katoa
Ta Moko is a specialist practice belonging to the ancestors and caretakers of Maori cultural knowledge. For a long period Ta Moko was endangered; outlawed in 1907 and tentatively revived in the 1980s. Today Ta Moko is enjoying an artistic resurgence amongst Maori.
