Native Affairs - Growing Pains

By Ruwani Perera

Documentary series, "Whānau" traces the lives of four Māori taiohi born at the start of the new millenium.

Producers return at seven-year intervals to take snapshots of their lives, exploring some of the issues that are unique to them and asking what it means to be Māori today.

The latest instalment goes to air tonight, but first Ruwani Perera takes a look back at the lives of the four whānau through the eyes of their taiohi.
