Ni Te Pou and her two children live in the Waimana Valley on the North Island. Many young Maori are drawing inspiration from Native American cultures. Ni and her 2-year-old son Matai Rangi are waiting for the school bus to take him to a Maori language preschool funded by the government. Most of the Maori have intermarried with Pakeha, or Europeans, and with blond hair and white skin, are hard to differentiate from the Pakeha majority. She has a new Maori tattoo, called moko, on her chin and lips. Moko had almost entirely disappeared in New Zealand but has been making a comeback in the past few years, although it is still extremely rare on women.
