As a blazing violet meteorite breaches Earth’s atmosphere, it is witnessed by a deity from the stars. The deity is the golden dimensional traveller Erohix, first born of his legendary race, the ix. Erohix, curious by what he sees, decides to investigate the inner workings of the meteorite. Using the help of his reconnaissance droid xi bot, they discover a dormant being encased within a glowing glass like structure. They realize the importance of their discovery when they are attacked by the tangata whenua, nga Atua Maori. It is here that our story begins ” To know ones destiny is key. Even after each galaxies collapse, after each black hole has eroded existence, and the darkness is all. It is still important to continue your search” – ix chronicles IIV- The Elders of Fe.
These graphic novels are designed for tamariki and are created with the guidance and input of mana whenua, ensuring that the stories and themes are culturally appropriate and accurate. Through these graphic novels, tamariki are able to engage with Māori stories, history, and culture in an accessible and visually engaging way. The use of images and storytelling can help to bring these stories to life and make them more relatable for tamariki. This is particularly important for Māori children who may not have access to this knowledge elsewhere. The graphic novels are an excellent tool for education, and they can help to foster a sense of pride and connection to Māori culture and identity. By using culturally appropriate images and language, we can empower tamariki to embrace their cultural heritage and to share their knowledge with others.
