The Misadventures of Te Kuri examines two Maori superheroes derived from American pop culture. Te Kuri and Pipiwharauroa navigate their way throughout the historical and contemporary cultural landscapes of Aotearoa New Zealand, often in the face of adversity and antagonism. Their journey frequently transcends time through the injection of notable characters, events, vernacular, and symbolism. Nau mai haere mai, welcome to the lair of Te Kuri.
