NATIVE Minds | Mei Kore Ake Te Koa – Our Culture Of Joy
March 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$6
When filmmakers gather to screen and share their work, they also need to talk about what they do and why. A storyteller is always alert to the tenor of the times in which they function. If they are honest, they are also alert to their own motivations and actions.
A Māoriland initiative NATIVE Minds is a series of interactive discussions that examine how Indigenous thinking shapes our existence, and our view of the world. Come and share some provocative and enlightening ideas that give enduring power and meaning to Indigenous cinema.
Mei Kore Ake Te Koa – Our Culture of Joy
To be Indigenous is often portrayed in the mainstream media as an act of defiance. It is however, an act of love: A love for your origins,: the people, the places and the ideas that made you. It is a love that makes you want to explore the things that accord you status as a human being. We find joy in those identity oriented acts of discovery and achievement. The NATIVE Mind knows how to change the negative narrative through the empowerment of joy.
