Meet Tame Iti (Tuhoe, Maori): Meet "The Prick"

Iti, Tame (Tuhoe, Maori), Meet: Meet

Many people love to go back to their roots, to learn of their ancestry, to go back in time as far as they can. For some it is a lesson in history, for others it's a personal experience that adds a deeper appreciation of their family and of themselves. For Tame Iti, it's much more than that. For Tame, he's Tuhoe first, Maori Second, and would claim Aotearoa as his country ahead of New Zealand, where he resides. He is a man whose face and body are covered in tattoos; thus the term "prick" has a dual meaning, one for his body art, the other picks up a phrase used by both sides between Iti and a conservative politician. Certainly a unique documentary about a unique man, this program too offers an intellectual look at a clash of cultures, where one man, very openly outspoken, who would prefer to remain one of the "children of the mist," forces the question to be asked, what is wrong with not wanting to be part of today's modern societies?
