The 100 stories recorded here are of incredible wahine who seek to influence the world around them. Each offer significance to the story of mana wahine. From Oscar-nominated filmmakers and award-winning musicians, to scientists, entrepreneurs, tribal leaders, artists, environmental champions, knowledge holders, mothers and more.

The youngest wahine is 14, the eldest is in her mid-70s, and their locations span both North and South Islands and across to Rekohu (Chatham Islands). The majority are wa¯hine Ma¯ori, with wahine Moriori, Pasifika, Melanesian, Wijadjuri, Himalayan and Mexican also included.
NUKU prioritises and celebrates the wa¯hine experience: our ceremonies, our knowledge systems, our atua, our aupapa, our lives.
