TAP graduate tells Aucklanders a uniquely Māori story

Māori Media graduate Ripeka Read is using the skills she learned during her studies to tell stories that give insight into te ao Māori.

A Digital Content Producer at the Auckland Council, Ripeka has produced a three-and-a-half-minute video that tells a uniquely Māori story. Incorporating te reo, kapa haka inspired choreography and eye-catching visuals, the video is a modern take on the ancient Māori creation myth.

The video is being projected on to buildings next to the central library as part of the library's Turama Matariki Light Show, from 14-15 July. Watch the video here and find out more about Ripeka’s journey at Te Ara Poutama

Te Ara Poutama at AUT is more than a learning space, it's a community. It lives out the idea of Whakapakari - which means to discover, evolve and grow.

Our Māori media, Māori development, language revitalisation and te reo qualifications are at the cutting edge and have been developed in response to the need for skilled Māori professionals in the fast-growing business and media sectors.
