The Untold Tales of Tūteremoana

The Untold Tales Of Tūteremoana is a coming-of-age Fantasy-Drama series born of the stars and rooted in the mountains, forests, rivers and sand dunes of Aotearoa (New Zealand). The writer and director Hiona Henare recreates three oral stories taken from her own tribal histories, in a reawakening of traditional Māori storytelling. Each story centres around a young lead protagonist who must rise to the challenge and defend their people, land and customary practices. The Untold Tales Of Tūteremoana is 100% Māori and celebrates the renaissance of Hiona’s endangered native language. It features an all Māori cast with veterans of stage and screen, along with a new generation of emerging young talent who shine, and are at the heart of each of the three stories.
