Mana Frank Patrick

In memory of Mana Patrick and the mana of all Maori takataapui.
“Nga takataapui” means close companions of the same sex.
“Haere ki tau u kaipo” means go to the bosom of your mother.
“Aataahua” is beautiful.

The base of this cloak design was given to Mana by the “HERO” workshop, Middleton Rd, Newmarket. All taonga were used at HERO parties 1993 and 1994.

Mana passed away 10th of May 1994.
