All the staff and students at Unitec who participated over the years. Particularly Vicki Thomas (Ngati Kahu).


This project is education based and utilised noho marae and whanauangatanga as an educational tool for concept and professional development as well as alumni networking. The entire department would stay at Omaha for one week, allowing marae tikanga to work its magic. Lectures, workshops and screenings were run by invited practitioners with a heavy emphasis on past graduates.
