Abstract
The title of this project is called Tukutahi, which means the synchronization of two or more subjects or objects moving together simultaneously. The central question in this dissertation asks, “How can I express the whanaungatanga of my mixed lineage using raranga?” This creative undertaking is about identity and the search of an ingredient that will enable my weaving techniques to display a combined relationship of a harmonious nature between my Māori and Scottish relatives. Although the whanaungatanga journey is not something that can be measured, what I have experienced, and its spiritual significance, has been an essential part of the academic journey.
