Abstract:

Everyone has seen it. But few have ever ventured onto Motutaiko, the small and mysterious island that lies in the middle of Lake Taupo. This bush-clad island is considered so special that even descendents of Ngati Tuwharetoa have maintained respect from a distance. Now, the island is home to rare plant, bird and insect life - as well as the sacred remains of revered ancestors like the great chief Te Rangituamatatoru. The Island is a documentary about Motutaiko, an island named after the muttonbirds it was once abundant with. But, it is also about the people who have ventured there and whose descendents occupy the shores of Lake Taupo.
