“I AM” is my response to Ava DuVernay’s film ORIGIN. It is about the reclamation, reconciliation and reconnection to our identity, our language and the origins of who we are and where we come from. By knowing who we are, we are then able to know where we are going. This is how we unlock our greatest power. I AM is taking back the power and giving it back to the people.

Ko tōku reo tōku ohooho, ko tōku reo toku māpihi maurea.
My language is my awakening, my language is the window to my soul.
