Nga Toki Mate Whenua – Axes Felling Trees, Kill the Land
1983
Tony Fomison (1939-1990)

“I became attracted to Maori culture because here was this culture produced in the country – an oral culture based on the love of the land, and love of the old and the young ones. In other words, a past, present and future.”
