BRAVE: Samoan Tatau and Si'i Alofa

BY DAISY LAVEA-TIMO
@ VOL 34 ON MAR 05, 2018

Daisy Lavea-Timo is a polynesian powerhouse poet, prop  and producer passed down from Samatau and Vailu’utai ancestry. A black and white Samoan lens converges and in those thousand shades of grey, Daisy explores what it means to be a straddler of worlds: a kiwi-born, fluent-Samoan speaking and traditional tattoo-wielding Matai.

Crowned  as the current New Zealand Slam Poetry Champion, many of Daisy’s poems speak on identity, purpose, rugby league and leadership.

In this PechaKucha, Daisy shares her story and those of friends and family, of Tatau, traditional Samoan tattoo.  Gaining a Tatau is a right of passage and a way of life.

Hot Baths and Cold Calls

BY KATHY BELGE
@ VOL 25 ON MAR 27, 2018

Just a few years ago it seemed like everything was going my way. I was enjoying a successful career as a freelance writer. I was traveling the country speaking and emceeing events such as San Francisco Pride with hundreds of thousands of people cheering and laughing. I was on fire. I was on my path. I was “on.” Yet, there I was a few years later, tying ribbons to balloons at Edible Arrangements for $8/hr. What happened? How did it come to this? And more importantly, what was I going to do to get my life back? This is my comeback story. The two things I did to get my life back.
