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.
