 Kia ora this term we have been doing Tukutuku. Tukutuku is a Te reo Māori art and is done by Māori kai-tukutuku all over Aotearoa. It is a type of weaving. My tukutuku is called 
Te Riri o Te Taniwha here is what I wrote as an explanation. Te riri o te taniwha is a panel based on the anger and rage of the atua on us. The atua are angry at us for polluting them 
and for killing parts of them. Taniwha are spirits, they are all over the world, you may think that the taniwha is a Māori thing but they relate to many spirits like dragons in the chinese culture and other spiritual creatures. In māori they are the balance between the spiritual 
and the physical side of us ngaa atua.

 Niho taniwha is the hoahoa we used. We used this because the taniwha protects the atua from us, as long as we remember and help protect nature, then we are stomping on its mana by killing the atua, and now the taniwha (and nga atua) are hoha with us all. Tukutuku is fun and takes a lot of effort you need to be happy, and you do it because the wairua you put into it determines what it turns out as.
