Misty valleys, timeless land
Haunting dawn, colours rich in quiet slender
Filtering light reaching effortlessly through an ancient canopy
Calming silence evoked, the land breaths
Listening…birdsong from deep within, beyond searching eyes
I hear your majesty, I feel your spirit Kokako
“is your song forever?”

Roi was born and raised in Southland province in the South Island of New Zealand, although his whakapapa (genealogy) is the Te Mahurehure hapu (sub-tribe) from the Hokianga in Northland on the North Island. In 1983, he received a three-year apprenticeship to the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute in Rotorua, where he learned to carve with the adze and chisel and graduated with honours. He has carved on four whare whakairo (carved houses), which fuelled his passion for perfecting the technical aspects of his art and led him to learn about the ideology and spiritual aspects of carving.
