through new art exhibition
Tame Iti has a new art exhibition in Wellington - I Will Not Speak Māori - where he reflects on his life as an activist.
The exhibition comes as Aotearoa celebrates 50 years of Te Reo Māori being recognised as an official language by the Government.
Iti was heavily involved with Ngā Tamatoa, a Māori activist group, who presented a 30,000 signature petition to Parliament in 1972 to have Te Reo Māori taught in schools.
Made up of sculpture, projection, performance and sound installations the exhibition tells Iti's story and the journey he's travelled as a Māori rights activist.
