Refelections on my Maori heritage

Yesterday we received a new calendar from my mother. The art is fantastic work by a mother of six, Theresa Reihana.

My grandmother was from the Ngaiterangi tribe. She was from Matakana Island. Sadly I know nothing of this side of my family. It's something I'd like to look into one day but for now I'll enjoy looking at my new calendar and reflecting on the world we live in.


  1. Hi Jacqui,
    I just saw your shop on ESTY. I too am a stay at home mum in Japan (from Australia/now Saitama)trying to get some stuff out there and see if I can't make a go of it from home. You can see my blog at:

  2. Thanks Andrea! I had a look at your artwork. It's beautiful. Let's see if we can work together to generate some more interest in Japan sellers.

    everyone, Andrea's blog is this address:
