Tapping into the Past
BODY:
The Cook Islands' traditional form of tattoo which was all but wiped out by colonisation but there are some ta tatau artists who are keeping the old ways alive.
EXTENDED BODY:
By Daniela Maoate-Cox
Hands in black pull the skin tight as fine bone points pierce it with ink.
A breeze rustles through the thatched roof and a rooster’s crow floats over the riddims of Bob Marley and the tapping of tatau tools.
"Bob Marley, Salmonella dub or Tiki, those three. It’s just got a good vibe to it,” says the man under the hammer, Thomas Tarurongo Wynne.
“Bob and tatau were made for each other,” tatau artist Croc chips in.
Croc moves the ‘ui tatau, a comb-like chisel, up the back of Thomas’ right leg, matching the markings on his left.
It’s a sensitive spot and the full work, which draws upon traditional Cook Island designs, will require a few more sessions to finish.
While there are many who believe tatau belongs to Samoa and is not a part of Cook Islands culture, Thomas disagrees.
Through his job as head of guidance at a local Rarotongan high school, he discovered that a strong sense of identity is created through knowing about history.
And through exploring the Cook Islands’ history of tatau, he says he found that it had been eradicated by the missionaries who deemed it to be a pagan practice.
“Interestingly people here say 'it’s not in our culture, we don’t tattoo', or 'we didn’t tattoo', or 'if you want to receive a tattoo then that’s not being Maori'.
"Which I find interesting because our very close cousins in New Zealand, Aotearoa, are tattooed.”
The renaissance of Cook Islands tatau is linked back to two events in the early 1990s. One is the teaching of the technique by a Samoan tufuga ta tatau, or master tattooist, Sua Sulu’ape Paulo II who felt tatau should be given back to other Pacific nations.
The other is the 1992 Pacific Arts Festival held in the Cook Islands.
“That really was our awakening around the fact that yes, we can receive tattoo”, Thomas says.
“Now it’s just making the connection to culturally and ancestrally what’s ours, which is tatau. It’s not the machine of course, it’s using traditional tools and traditional methods to receive the tattoo.”
Croc is one of those practicing the traditional method. He’s an Englishman who learned the craft from Moko Ink’s, Inia Taylor, in New Zealand, who in turn learned from Sulu’ape.
“I see it in Europe a lot, tattoo is in its form which is awesome,” he says. “But it’s also out of control, you’ve got young people running around there that have just their hands, or their neck or face tattooed. Sounds odd coming from me but I find it shocking”.
So Croc is practicing his skill in the Cook Islands where the revival is in its early steps and he can help restore what was lost.

Before then Grant was able to fly his drones over much of the country, over landscapes and scrap car yards, farms and city centres. He's brought together a collection of these photos in Eye in the Sky: A Drone Above New Zealand.

A Heart and Soul Documentary from the BBC World Service

Canon Andrew White, was know for years as the Vicar of Baghdad, but due to the threat of Islamists in Iraq, he, like thousands of other Christians was forced to flee for his life .

He is now based in Jordan where he has set up a new Parish in the town of Amman, his parishioners are, like him, Christians in exile, forced from their home in Mosul and other parts of Iraq now held by Islamic state.
Dale Gavlak joins Canon White as he travels around his new makeshift parish which has clinics, nurseries, and a church for the Christians that have been fortunate and able to escape persecution. Dale attends Friday mass which Canon White boasts brings together Christians from different denominations to worship in one unifying service.
Alongside Canon White, Dale meets Iraqis, forced into the refugee camp linked to his parish to hear their stories of escaping IS and the role their faith has played. Dale hears Canon White's own story which has taken him to war zones around the world and questions him about his own controversial views on Israel/Palestine and the justification for war which have put him at odds with his church.

Huruiki - The Return of a Mountain
BODY:
Jeremy Rose is in Whangarei with Brandon Edwards who successfully purchased Huruiki mountain in 2011, after the land was sold in 1961 due to rates arrears.
EXTENDED BODY:
Huruiki: The Return of a Mountain
The Shadows fall! The Shadows fall!
And the Māori will be plaited as a rope
Its rates and its taxes are biting!
So begins Sir Apirana Ngata's translation of the Ngāti Pōrou haka Te Kiri Ngutu. And it continues:
Never does the loss of our landed heritage
Cease to burden our minds! A ha ha!
Ever it is upon our lips, clinging
As did the headbands of the warriors
Arranged to parry the enemy's blows!
A ha ha! I was scorched in the fire
Of the sacrifice of blood, and stripped
To the vital heart of the land,
Bribed with the Pakeha gold!
Māori land continued to be alienated due to rates arrears well into the 20th century. And Pakeha "gold" continued to be used to purchase it.
The history of New Zealand Aotearoa in the 19th and 20th centuries is to a large extent a history of the alienation of communally-owned iwi and hapu land – the spiritual and economic life-blood of Māori communities.
As early as 1865 – when the Māori Land Court was set up – 55 percent of the land in Te Paparahi o Te Raki – or Northland – had been lost to Māori through a combination of confiscations and sales to the Crown.
By 1910 another 600,000 acres – or thirty percent of the whenua still owned by Māori – had been purchased by the Crown or private parties. And by the dawn of the 21st century just 10 percent of Te Paparahi o Te Raki was in Maori hands.
The Crown and Northland iwi are yet to settle their claims and no doubt some land will be returned when they do – but with Waitangi Tribunal claims restricted by law to lands currently in Crown ownership it will only be a fraction of the land lost. Sadly all too often the land with the most spiritual value is not in Crown ownership.
That was the case with Mt Huruiki until one of the descendants of its original owners – Brandon Edwards (Ngāti Hau, Ngāpuhi) - managed to buy it back in 2011.
In 1961 Huruiki Station was sold to a local Pakeha farmer and the title was transferred from Māori to general title. Brandon’s grandfather was one of 100 shareholders in the land and held the single biggest share – the third generation in the family to do so.
Brandon, a commercial lawyer and investment banker by trade, doesn’t know exactly how the sale came about but does know that the owners were in rates arrears for three years and owed £76.
“I believe, just looking through the information I’ve had available to me, there was some form of persuasion, pressure, encouragement, if you like, because of the default or the arrears in rates to look to sell the property.
“I can only assume, also that’s the case, because it is the maunga for our hapu. That decision to sell would not have been made lightly.”
Brandon grew up hunting on the land – because his family had remained friends with the Pakeha owners – but access to the whenua and the maunga couldn’t be taken for granted by the many other local Māori who whakapapa to Huruiki. From an early age Brandon dreamed of buying the land back.
In the early 2000s the property came back on the market and Brandon Edwards, who had recently graduated and was a practicing lawyer, scraped together everything he could and put together a bid for the property but it wasn't enough and the property was sold to developers. “So we thought maybe it is just a pipe-dream.”
Brandon and his wife Kiri set about making a life for themselves overseas – with Brandon working as an investment banker in Hong Kong, Singapore and London, and Kiri Edwards bringing up their young family and representing Hong Kong in netball. It was a successful ex-pat life – a long way from Northland.
Then in 2011 Huruiki station came back onto the market; and Brandon and Kiri, having spent 15 years working in investment banking, were in a position to buy it back.
The couple and their children have returned to Aotearoa for good, and are in the process of transforming Huruiki into a sustainable farm.... and much, much more.
Each school holidays children from Brandon's Whakapara marae run up the 465 metre Mt Huruiki and learn about its history, fauna and flora. The mountain has returned to its people.

The issues and experience of disability (RNZ)

Going shopping in Taranaki has just become easier for the 29 per cent of its population who live with a disability. The Taranaki Disability Information Centre (TDIC) has been running a campaign encouraging business owners to re-jig the layout of their shops, provide seating, use easy to read signage and labels and make entrance-ways more accessible. Even business cards are being checked to see if they've been designed with everyone in mind. Fifty businesses in New Plymouth have been assessed and now the programme is being rolled out across the province; to Waitara, Eltham, Hawera, Stratford, Inglewood and Opunake. Awards are being given to the most accessible businesses. TDIC general manager Brian Erikson says businesses are assessed and are given feedback on where improvements could be made. Shop-keepers are given the opportunity to take part in disability awareness training. He says at the beginning of the campaign he walked up New Plymouth's main street with a friend who was in a wheelchair. Of the 30 businesses they approached, his friend said he wouldn't go into 15 of them. "And I thought, Man, there's people probably in the shops waiting for him to come in but not realising they need to do something about their entrance or when they get into the shop, have somewhere that he and the wheelchair could go because he wouldn't feel uncomfortable going in the shop and knocking over things." Brian says the campaign has been a great success and he expects business will increase for shops that have become more accessible. "There are no demands to do anything just suggestions…It's a really good campaign because if you haven't had a disability or haven't had to get around a shop with a disability then you don't know and that's the biggest issue - a lot of people don't know."
