A beautiful Maori, Paitangi Ostick, is above all a very talented, multi-faceted artist, recognised among her people. All Maori arts fascinate her: engraving, sculpting wood or bone, composing and singing her native music, tattooing… She is sometimes criticised for daring to rise to challenges usually reserved for men, like tattooing or waka. This is the story of a fighter and her victory.
