              "The practice of t moko, and the wearing of moko, was considered an art form of a bygone day for the most part of the twentieth century, as casualty of Aotearoa New Zealand's colonial past. However, this unique Pacific art is enjoying a revival. Its embers fanned back to life by ...modern practitioners in the 1980s, it has once again become a powerful form of Mori cultural expression, identity and unity. In a first for Australia, 'Mori markings: t moko' looks at not only the history of this living, breathing art of our region but also shares stories of today's proud moko wearers and practitioners"--Foreword.
