Tikanga Ora, Tikanga Toitū | Living Traditions, Enduring Traditions
Māori culture celebrates the place enduring art traditions play in the lives of people. The artforms of whakakai (body adornment), raranga (weaving) and uku (clay making) continue to be integral in shaping Māori visual culture. These living traditions can be seen in the work of Māori artists throughout time and they continue to inspire today. The work of contemporary makers connects to a legacy of ancestral knowledge, technical skill and material relationships. These making traditions navigate customary knowledge while introducing contemporary materials and sensibilities that speak to present conditions.
