Te Fola Papa Niutao: The Mats of Niutao

Fafine Niutao I Aotearoa

Fafine Niutao I Aotearoa, a Tuvaluan arts collective whose members come from the Island of Niutao, was established in Auckland to make certain the art making practices of the members' homeland were known and continued by younger generations now living in Aotearoa New Zealand. The transmission of tactile knowledge is integral to ensure Tuvaluan artforms continue and, in this major project by Fafine Niutao I Aotearoa, the knowledge is passed through the core practice of weaving papa (plain) mats.
