Traditional Maori legends and rituals come from a Polynesian homeland. It is believed that everything has a spiritual essence – land, nature, and humans. This essence is called Mana.
The Bunun are a group of people indigenous to Taiwan. Their tribe is well-known for vocal traditions and song. I lived in Taiwan for a year, teaching English. Any moment I had the opportunity to escape city life and head to the hills, I took it. Indigenous culture, art and music stirs a curiosity within me.
