dc.description.abstractIn 1966, my grandparents and five of their children migrated from Tokelau to New Zealand. They have resided in our family homestead in Māngere East since 1970. Ko te matou kaiga tenei is a moving image based project that examines the influence New Zealand culture has on my family’s Tokelauan heritage. Through Talanoa, as a research methodology, I examine our family stories, land, experiences and cultural history. The stories are not only for my family and me, but also for other audiences to share an understanding of the Tokelauan culture. Considered through Linda Tuhiwai Smith’s decolonization framework, my project utilises claiming, storytelling and celebrates cultural survival; the survival of my family and their Tokelauan protocols, despite being physically away from the land. It is the merging of two cultures and telling a story – an old story, with a new twist.en_NZ
