    Lovely photos.
    Any word on Rapaki & Ruamoko rumblings?
    Any chance of the Joe Bennett solution?

    What gorgeous photos, my friend. I especially like the kuia greeting the manuhiri. Beautiful.

    Rūaumoko is a little quieter these past few weeks & life goes on at Rapaki. There's been plenty of damage of course, although the new marae itself stood up pretty well It's a wee bit nervewracking when you're over there though, and look up and see all the monstrous boulders on the hills above the village.

    Thanks Jackie- it's one of my personal favourites too.

    Thanks for the comment Danielle - Murihiku Marae is in a beautiful spot but I chose this kaimoana-gathering shot to represent the marae instead of the marae itself because there was such a gorgeous sky that day and Mahinga Kai practices are so important to Ngāi Tahu as an iwi.

    Did you do the lovely large 'Food Calendar' Ngāi Tahu released some years back?

  • Gee,

    These are beautiful shots, thank you. I have whanau at Tuahiwi school: it's great to see such a tiny school in a tiny village represented here.

    Whitianga Bay Marae, East Cape.

    Fantastic and important images, Adrienne.

    If I may humbly agree.

    When we first starting planning this, Adrienne offered images of either Ngāi Tahu or various places around the country, including the East Cape, which has a special resonance for me. But I'm very glad we went this way as the images speak of a special connection between the photographer and the people being photographed.

    Adrienne could of course post any other photos she might wish to in the comments. ;-)

    In any case, thank you again Adrienne.

    I know the calendars you mean - stunning! Unfortunately not. They were produced by Strategy Design and I can't recall the photographer they used.

    And exciting times at Tuahiwi Marae too - what will the upcoming building of their new wharenui. Sad to see the old hall demolished but it will be exciting to see what takes its place. I love the way the school and the marae (across the road from each other) interact at Tuahiwi.

    As a former Gisborne lad, I'd love to see some East Coast pics, too. It really is a unique part of the country.

    I have a few from East Cape in the can. This out from the Whitianga Bay Marae.

    Marae at Omaio.

    Adrienne might be familiar with it too. ;-)

  • JacksonP,

    Not wishing to steal your attention away from the original subject matter too quickly, but Adrienne does have an excellent blog of Maori Lifestyle photos, which if you are starved for more, should keep you happy for some time.

    Maori Lifestyles.

    My attention was drawn to the posts on Omaio also. What an amazing collection of work!

    I adore the East Cape region and on my last visit had two very memorable encounters. The first was at the exquisite Tikitiki Church, at Tikitiki, where, early in the morning, I met the minister, William Pepere (Ngāti Porou), who showed me around this masterpiece of Māori carving.

    The second was at the tiny Māori settlement of Nuhaka, where I stopped at the Kahungunu Marae. I was sitting in my car admiring it from outside, when the marae caretaker, a lovely old kuia called Cairo Otene tapped on my window and invited me in for a guided tour and a little photography. That was special encounter. You can read about both of these in more depth in my Meet the People series at Maori Lifestyles. Just enter Meet the People into the blog index for easy access.

    I have a copy of the “RESPECT" seafood calendar – Damon McPhail was the photographer for that. There is another earlier one, but that’s currently residing over at my mother’s -

    And suddenly, I am put in mind of Leo Koziol's wonderful Naked in Nukaha series of writings.
