He Whakahirahiratanga o te Ira Wahine: A Celebration of Womanhood
"Waiwhero, ikura, awa atua, māui is an intergenerational gift that connects us to our tìpuna, our atua and our creation stories. Acknowledge it as such and it may become a blessing time of power for you" - Ngahuia Murphy, author.
This book is about reclaiming the celebrations and traditions around ikura and a girls' journey into womanhood, releasing the notion of periods being whakamā (shameful) and allowing women to step into their power.
Waiwhero is a beautiful educational resource that can be read by mothers and daughters when their ikura arrives.
