≥In He Reo Tawhito, a Conversation about Mōteatea and Taonga Puoro with Jerome Kavanagh, we hear how mōteatea and taonga puoro go hand-in-hand, weaving together beautifully to tell stories that are ‘sung from the past, into the present, and into the future’.

He Reo Tawhito: Conversations about Mōteatea
Mōteatea is a centuries-old tradition of chanted song-poetry; a great literary and musical art form that expresses the powerful portrayal of storytelling and is reflective of the emotional depths of a Māori world view. Its vast richness is yet to be fully understood.
In this seven-part series hosted by Crystal Edwards, we hold conversations with some of the world's leading experts on mōteatea and ask them: What exactly is mōteatea? How has it changed since colonisation? What issues does it face today?
