Review by Maia

This Maori art & lit journal is full of treasures. Showcasing fresh, indigenous talent in a variety of poetic forms and art mediums, I always find something that resonates deeply as well as something that challenges & intrigues. Affecting, politically pertinent and visually pleasing, PUHIA is a publication I read immediately as it arrives in-store. I’m already look forward to issue toru!
