Mamae Takerei and Te Kahautu Maxwell will deliver a series of feature presentations over three days at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The schedule is as follows.

Kiingitanga: The Untold Story

When: Wednesday @ 10:00am – 10:45am
Where: Feature Presentation Stage

“Kiingitanga: The Untold Story” is about colonial greed for land, the betrayal of a friendship and the branding of a people as rebels to qualify the taking of land by force. This presentation unfolds the anguish, pain, and suffering of the Kiingitanga to that of our kinsfolk across the world.

Kiingitanga: Our People

When: Thursday @ 10:00am – 10:45am
Where: Feature Presentation Stage

The diversity of Maori reflected in this presentation gives rise from poverty, politics to prosperity. With 67,000 registered tribal members, Waikato Iwi has withstood the impact of the colonial process from the 'grave' to become a vital contributor to meeting the need of the greater communities through education and its investment in the commercial enterprise.

Kiingitanga: Our Culture

When: Friday @ 10:00am – 10:45am
Where: Feature Presentation Stage

A celebration of our excellence in performing arts provides an inside view of the Maori world in this presentation. Our culture is a creation through all godly deities of the celestial realm. Disney's animated images of the obese demigod Maui, the petiite 'Moana' so demure and sexual? Are these images wanton examples of cultural appropriation for monetary benefit?
