Kawakawa Tree

A visual, interactive interpretation of the Hearts and Minds of Katikati research

The community led the research to five main limbs which are represented in the adjacent tree graphic, and explored further in the written report. Kawakawa was chosen as the tree to represent the research as it’s heart shaped leaves have many healing properties. The researchers believe Hearts and Minds of Katikati serves as a foundation to bring a sense of healing and reinvigoration to the Katikati community.

Video Content

A number of videos were captured during the research project

Night Lounge Video
Held in September, the month of suicide awareness, Night Lounge was a youth event to bring awareness to the kaupapa regarding suicide prevention. A follow up video interview was conducted with Lose, during which her maturity, caring nature and insight is apparent. The interview paints a picture of how life is for some of our young people in Katikati, and the difference people could make to improve interconnection as a community.
