“i do it different”

CAN I DO IT?

PICK YOUR POISON

Rites of Passage = Connection + Unity

The honouring of significant tribal milestones is almost forgotten.

Milestones such as:

Conception, pregnancy, birth, first steps, the first day at Kōhanga Reo or kindergarten, Kura Kaupapa or primary school (historically wānanga), your child’s voice breaking, a daughters first menstrual cycle, your childs first hunt, your childs first animal kill (tribal sustenance), engagement, marriage and finally death were always celebrated parts of tribal culture.

Recently, academic and sporting achievement such as graduations and contractual procurement have been included. However, we must not forget those milestones that truly make up the circle of life.

Celebrate the entire journey!
