Artists' Talk: Sione Tuívailala Monū and Edith Amituanai

Join Tāmaki Makaurau-based artists Sione Tuívailala Monū (Aotearoa, Australia, Tonga) and Edith Amituanai (Aotearoa, Samoa) to learn more about their exhibition, Toloa Tales.

In 2023, Edith and Sione travelled to Samoa to celebrate a friend’s participation in the Miss Samoa Fa’afafine Pageant and visit Edith’s family. Sione was interested in exploring historical and familial connections between Tonga and Samoa, and both were thinking about what it means to return to an ancestral homeland, for themselves and others.
