Te Kuia Moko: The Last Tattooed Maori Women

Author(s): Harry Sangl

A few of our favourite things.

Te Kuia Moko is a taonga recording 34 Maori women, all bearing moko kauae (chin tattoos). First published in 1980 as The Blue Privilege , this new printing evidences the book's ongoing importance as a record of moko art. Biographies of the women are printed substantially as they spoke them, supplemented by essays by Merimeri Penfold and D.R. Simmons. The records are accompanied by black-and-white sketches of the kuia's moko complementing the beautiful, full colour paintings.
