Mamai’ata (The New Dawn) presents a series of human qualities that seek to uncover pou on a journey to balance life’s challenges. This work calls upon its audience to reflect on their own personal experiences, focusing on human traits and characteristics that we all possess. Mamai’ata sets out to reveal our own frailties and strengths, exposing a new way to a good life with the break of a new dawn.
