‘Te Hokinga Mai – The Return’ Out Now

The first two episodes of Te Hokinga Mai – The Return, produced and directed by DEGANZ member Kathleen Mantel, are available to watch on Whakaata Māori now.

The eight-part docuseries offers an intimate look into people’s journeys across Aotearoa as they connect with their Māori whakapapa and whenua. While some are just beginning this journey of connection, others are further down the path.

The opening title offers a glimpse at how Aotearoa’s rapid urbanisation impacted the indigenous people of the land. The series unpacks this further, featuring a new and unique story each week from different parts of the country.
