I am stoked to be tattooing at the Conscious Roots Festival due to be held at Hongoeka Marae, Plimmerton on 28th-29th November 2015.
From the Conscious Roots Festival website:
"A generation ago, whānau shared kai as a means of connection and empowerment, threading lives, whakapapa and community together through the exchange of food, traditional practice and stories.
In this day and age, much of the old ways have been replaced with convenience, entertainment and consumerism. But things are changing..
On the fringes of our communities, there are small groups of whānau who are practicing the ways of their tipuna. They are replanting the seeds of traditional practice, sustainability, hauora and self determination.
The Conscious Roots Festival brings gardeners, healers, whānau and kaumātua together to celebrate and strengthen our connection to Papatuanuku and each other. There will be music, stories, creativity, film, workshops, dance, rongoā, karetao, mirimiri, fire, hangi, and laughter in the spirit of community."
Come on down and check it out!
