Te Pito (2023)

9 min 24 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

In Te Pito, the movements of dancer Jahra Wasasala Ragar signal the umbilical cord connecting us to our surroundings and whenua. As a descendant of Te Āti-Awa that holds links to the Whakatū region, the artist hopes Te Pito will act as a guide, facilitator, and creative portal for others seeking to reclaim identity and reconnections to whakapapa.
