"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."

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.

 

 RESIST IMITATION  Support the integrity and wellbeing of Ta Moko Maori futures. Your appreciation of genuine Ta Moko traditions gives respect and value to its rightful place.
