Nikau Hindin

Nikau Hindin (Te Rarawa, Ngāpuhi) is a multi-disciplinary artist with a revivalist agenda to re-awaken/remember the process of making aute (Māori tapa cloth.) Hindin’s mission to re-learn this practice was influenced by the revitalisation of voyaging, navigation and her involvement with waka haurua. Hindin graduated from Elam with Honours, she also attended the University of Hawai’i, Mānoa where she learned the Hawaiian and Samoan traditions of barkcloth. Hindin finished her Masters in Creative Practice from Toihoukura last year.
