The Coconet TV is proud to continue its 'Daughters of the Migration' series celebrating the impact Pacific women have had in Aotearoa over the generations.
"Migration is just as important today as it was when our ancestors navigated the Pacific. Sharing our stories of strength and forward movement, despite struggle and separation, is the key to indigifuturism and power for our people.
As a Cook Islands Māori creative native wahine, I am always inspired by the amazing multi-talents of Pacific women like Mechatronics Engineer and South Pacific Beauty Queen Representative, Joyana Finch.
To be able to share a small part of her story in this creative series is part of our migration as Māori and Pacific storytellers in contributing to the authentically indigenous voices of the world." - Director Lanita Ririnui
