For 150 years, the relationship between Tūhoe and the New Zealand government has been defined by longstanding grievances over colonisation experiences.

Then, in 2014 history was made: Tūhoe’s ancestral homelands were returned, the New Zealand government gave an official apology and Tūhoe built the first ever “Living Building” in New Zealand, conceived as a testament to their values and vision of self-governance. Ever the Land tracks the birth of this building and provides an artful insight into the gentle ebb and flow of Tūhoe life.
