Ngāriki is Māori ki Moananui-O-Kiva (Pacific Ocean) with connections to Ngāti Uri, Ngāti Ārera (Rarotonga), Ngāti Rupe (Aitutaki) and Ngāti ‘Akatauira (Mitiaro). An emerging writer-director and indigenous storyteller currently based in Aotearoa-New Zealand, Ngāriki has broad experience across the arts, activism, and film. Through Indigenous filmmaking, Ngāriki seeks to free the indigenous voice to be heard authentically. She draws upon her Polynesian Māori and mixed whakapapa and is heavily influenced by the narratives, ceremonies, healing, rituals and connections to spirit that are born from her indigenous roots.
Ngāriki has voyaged at sea for six months on a traditional Polynesian double-hulled canoe and her research interests are in exploring the intersections of indigenous storytelling, indigenous sovereignty and community transformation. She draws upon her Polynesian Māori and mixed whakapapa and is heavily influenced by the narratives, ceremonies, healing, rituals and connections to spirit that are born from her indigenous roots.
