              NUKU is a powerful and important snapshot of Indigenous wahine today. Through wide-ranging voices this ambitious social documentary showcases diverse representations of leadership, systems change and success. Readers obtain authentic insight into life as an Indigenous woman in a ...way like never before. The 100 stories recorded here are of incredible w?hine who seek to influence the world around them. Each offer significance to the story of mana w?hine. From Oscar-nominated filmmakers and award-winning musicians, to scientists, entrepreneurs, tribal leaders, artists, environmental champions, knowledge holders, mothers and more. The youngest wahine is 14, the eldest is in her mid-70s, and their locations span both North and South Islands and across to R?kohu (Chatham Islands). The majority are wa?hine Ma?ori, with w?hine Moriori, Pasifika, Melanesian, Wijadjuri, Himalayan and Mexican also included. NUKU prioritises and celebrates the wa?hine experience: our ceremonies, our knowledge systems, our atua, our kaupapa, our lives. Each k?rero is accompanied by striking photographic portraits, inspiring generations of women to see themselves within these pages. NUKU (and the accompanying multi-media series) is entirely led, created by and about, Indigenous women. To honour collective story sovereignty and ensure a foundation of mana motuhake, this book has also been self-published.
