Kiko - 'Ka Puta'

Ka Puta is about breaking enclosing barriers and finding your own path, your new journey. It contextualises escaping colonial encroachment and the western determined formula of existence. 

This story is told in an interaction between two characters. One personifying the colonising culture, a missionary attempting to replace existing beliefs with his own by desecrating incarnations of traditional spirituality. 

The other is our hero and represents the indigenous Māori culture. She evades the destruction and travels through an otherworldly experience that empowers her to rise up and fight for her tino rangatiratanga, her freedom.
