Ka Mua, Ka Muri  |  Walking Backwards into the future. 

A heartwarming, and very New Zealand delve into who we are, and where we've come from.  Full of laughter and tears.

Navigating our future, holding the past in our sight.  
Tipping into the unknown.    
We gaze ahead.  We survey the landscape.  
We carry in our bones those before us.
As our ancestors navigated their way by the stars, we too look up to the stars. 
There is light in the darkness, there are pools of light. 
There is a beam of light revealing sightings.

Written by Miriama McDowell and Fiona Graham with Denyce Su'a
