Aré Vaka Falé Va'a Wharé Waka Halé Va'a, 2017
This represents the first safe space for us. When the Vaka is pulled to land it is turned over to create shelter. A safe space for protection from outside forces. A place to deliberate/talanoa/hui. A space to rest/entertain or work. Like the vaka it is lashed together for strength and security representing the bounds that reach back generations through shared knowledge from one island to another.
