Follow the riveting case of Tame Iti, an Indigenous activist from the Ngāi Tūhoe community of Ruatoki in New Zealand, who is on trial for allegedly plotting terrorist activities. Are secret government surveillance and violent raids warranted on Maori resistance movements warrented? What does it look like and what does it mean for a government to truly apologize and make amends for generations of oppression? Iti’s legal struggle becomes a microcosm of the tension, conflict, and attempts at reconciliation between Māori communities and the government of New Zealand.

Haka is a genre of Māori performance that is sometimes called a ‘war dance’—foot-stomping and body percussion combine with raised voices to create a vivid spectacle. Now, the haka is a staple of New Zealand rugby teams. In schools, private clubs, even on the national team, this dance is used to intimidate opponents and also to connect with Māori roots. Journey into a rehearsal of this complex rite.
