Hinepau is different from other members of the hapū. She looks different, weaves back to front and inside out, and just doesn’t seem to fit in. Hinepau’s attempts to hide her uniqueness fail and, through fear and prejudice, she is cast out.

As time moves on, the influence of the tētē ara (upcoming chief) grows, along with his arrogance. His actions lead to a violent volcanic eruption, destroying the village. With their land desolate, there is little chance of survival. Hinepau respects the mauri; life force. The power of her respect offers the opportunity to save the village, but only through an ultimate gift of aroha can she save the very people who rejected her.

Based on the book of the same name by Gavin Bishop, published by Scholastic New Zealand
