    Yes, same feeling, no memory of past waitaha lives, feeling, yes. The memory I have is being a connector with the waitaha as they slowly arrived, being with the ones before waitaha, we were putting the sound out as such, peoples picked up the vibration and headed here, others ancestors had been here and returned using their oral history.

    A woman tā moko artist, Paitangi Ostick, featured on Waka Huia

    I know very little about the different tribes and cultures of NZ, all I know is that the Kiwis that I've met throughout my life have been great and a gentleness of spirit that shines through.

    I found this short, interesting documentary about a woman artist that is following her heart, doing what she's meant to. I thought maybe it would fit in with this thread, if you don't mind. I don't understand Maori, but it's got subtitles in English.

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    WOW, that is a lot of interesting material!

    You introduced your childhood home to me in the Survivor Thread a long time ago, where you were absolutely flabbergasted to recognize the area in one of the documentaries. I've been toying with Google Maps, watching Mt. Taranaki, isn't that the place? I've nearly lost myself looking at it. It is amazing to see the nearly perfect circle of the Egmont National Park, surrounding Mt. Taranaki. It must be a very special place, my goodness.

    You know, I think it is an excellent idea that you make a thread just for New Zealand. There is bound to be an endless amount of information. But having said that, you maybe should change the title of the thread to have people recognizing it for what it is. Just a thought.

    Hello Nothing, you are really Something, you know. Here it is changed already. Hope you are comfortable with it....Aragorn had no problem with doing that.

    Think about what you want to call it and let me know, OK?
