Tangata Whenua was a groundbreaking six part documentary series that first screened in 1974. Historian Michael King was scriptwriter, interviewer and narrator. Each episode (remarkably screening in prime time on Sunday nights) chronicled a different iwi and included interviews with kaumatua - a first for NZ screens.

Another in the series of Polynesian warrior figures by Michael Lothiam and Sam ʻOhu Gon. This intermediate draft does not include the bleached hair described in early accounts of Sāmoa.
