Every year Aotearoa, New Zealand receives intakes of humanitarian migrants under the United Nations resettlement quota, asylum seekers and family reunification programmes. A lot of misinformation and fear surrounds this process, and little is known about the people who are coming to restart their lives in this country.

This project is about exposing New Zealanders to the weath and diversity of these cultures. The project celebrates their strength, resilience, taonga tuku iho and mana, as they become part of a new and more diverse New Zealand identity.
