WHINA is the story of Dame Whina Cooper (played by Miriama McDowell and Rena Owens), the beloved Māori matriarch who worked tirelessly to improve the rights of her people, especially women.
Flawed yet resilient, Whina tells the story of a woman formed by tradition, compelled by innovation, and guided by an instinct for equality and justice whose legacy as the Te Whaea o te Motu (Mother of the Nation) was an inspiration to an entire country.
