The Road to Whakarae

Tim Worrall / Aaron Smart
Running time: 3 mins

Exploring Waimana Valley's essence through waiata 'Te Rori ki Whakarae, e,' celebrating Tūhoe life and its enduring spirit.

The lyrics of the song “Te Rori ki Whakarae, e” tell of how the winding, dusty road is a special part of the mana of the Waimana Valley. The same could be said of the various whānau and hapū in the valley who have retained much of what it is to live in a uniquely Tūhoe way. This is the spirit the filmmakers hope to share in the film.
