          In Roka’s work entitled Toku Haerenga (my Journey), she aims to reveal the intrinsic weaving inheritance she has acquired through her own personal background and her connections with whanau? (family) and others as well as the genesis of her practice in her own personal context – a context in which issues of resilience and cultural survival have played important roles. Her actual practice in this project engages with the translation of traditional Maori off-loom hand woven garments into a contemporary arts practice in Western loom weaving to bring the two cultures of Aotearoa New Zealand together.
