This exhibition acknowledges and celebrates the mana of Māori women - from the female deities in Māori origin stories to the tīpuna wahine who played pivotal roles in our physical and cultural survival. It also tells the stories of some contemporary Māori women who continue the legacy of those who have gone before.

Mana is the status or spiritual power that comes from the atua (gods). Mana wahine is a power that is particular to women and derives from Papatūānuku, the earth mother, and other female atua associated with the natural world.

Much of the knowledge surrounding Māori women and their integral roles within te ao Māori has at times been forgotten or silenced, but recently through scholarship, art, and activism, some of this knowledge has resurfaced.

This exhibition counters the passive and limiting ‘dusky maiden’ stereotype of the past by highlighting stories of dynamic and strong Māori women from earliest times to the present day.
