4 January 2022TREND SIGNAL_Oriini Kaipara, primetime news anchor with Māori face tattoo
Small but interesting and hopeful trend signal about the growing worldwide inclusivity movement.
Oriini Kaipara, newsreader in New Zealand made history by becoming the first person with a traditional face tattoo to anchor a primetime news broadcast. Kaipara, who is filling in for the regular hosts on Newshub Live evening show, created waves online by becoming the first Māori woman with a moko kauae to present primetime news on television. The moko kauae represents a rite of passage, marking the passage between girl and adulthood and symbolises a personal process of transformation.
Let’s go for much more diversity and new definitions of beauty.
