to make a connection with your audience Mihi establish links with other people present. Mihimihi involve individuals standing to introduce themselves by sharing their whakapapa (genealogy, ancestral ties) and other relevant information. It is important for Maori to know and to share their whakapapa - to know one’s whakapapa is to know one’s identity.
why digital - accesssibilty for all, can include multilingual, sign language, voice over, images personalisation, tell your story your way more information through images, add sounds, building a story = building a connection embed leans you can link ot it embed it andshare ore widely share with wider world,
Story is important - talk about how mihi shares a story of belonging… share psychology of storytelling?? maybe?? Images tell a story so well telling the first story - creating a common story image from Kawakawa mural
What do you want to share? What is important for others to know? What might create a common language? A person will usually identify specific geographical features associated with their tribal area including their maunga (mountain), awa (river) and moana (sea). They may also identify their waka (ancestral canoe), hapu (sub tribe), iwi (tribe), marae and an eponymous ancestor. This information is considered more important than the individual’s own name which may be the last piece of information given in mihimihi.
