NgÄ Mahi Tuku Iho (Skills From Our Ancestors) is a tribute by Tanya Edwards to her MÄori and Tongan ancestors. By creating fine cloaks made from a blend of ngatu and muka, Tanya embraces the traditional artform of her ancestors and pays homage to the wonderful histories recorded in the ngatu pieces gifted to her fatherâ€™s family over generations.
The exhibition is an account of the last seventeen years she spent living in Tonga and her aroha for Aotearoa and her MÄori heritage.
