This work is both personally and culturally significant and may be considered sensitive. The child in this work is a family member and has both Maori and Dutch ancestry. For me this work ask many questions regarding culture identity and appropriation. Where should we stand? are we pushing our children to take one side over others? Are they free to explore all aspects of their family and personal history. How can we know where to stand when the pressure comes from all directions.
