Mua

Mua means that we need to face the past to move forwards.

 

This video depicts the relationship between a grandfather and granddaughter and the passing of wisdom to the next generation.  It emphasises the knowledge that people have when they are living in close connection with the land and how that can get lost as communities urbanise.  This provides a link with traditional Matauranga Maori, aspects of which all communities could embrace, as it emphasises the need to be in harmony with our environment.

 

Mua talks about the changes that have occurred in recent decades particularly with urbanisation; some good, some not so good.  It also stresses the need to have a vision and to stay true to that vision, define a path and know where you are going.
