Pacifica Mamas

Pacifica Mamas adorn Auckland Town Hall with giant ei as gift of love

The Pacifica Mamas, an acclaimed collective of Pacific heritage artists, has woven the ei out of upcycled plastic as a gift to Auckland.

Formed in the late 1980s, the Pacifica Mamas are all the first-generation pacific immigrants to New Zealand, originally from island nations including the Cook Islands, Samoa, Tuvalu, Tonga, Tokelau, Kiribati and Niue.
