Indigenous Art – Tatau

A dedicated Indigenous Space

This year we are doing something new and exciting to acknowledge the significant contributions of indigenous peoples worldwide to restoration of their tattoo practices.

With the support of Te Tuhi Mareikura Trust we are able to offer for the first time, a dedicated Indigenous Space to host an inaugural profiling of tangata whenua (Māori) and indigenous nations at the festival.

Internationally renowned, leading artists of tattoo and culture from Aotearoa, Tahiti, Marquesas, Borneo, Taiwan, Japan, Cook Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Melanesia, Hawaii, Philippines and more, are invited to celebrate their tatau, art and dance traditions within this space.
