Her practice aims to document and share community stories, generating a living archive. Her kaupapa has been described as one that is based on koha – often made with and gifted back to the communities she is engaged with. 

Tuafale shares an insight on her 2 part documentary short called Chasing Chaka 2018: A Healing Adventure (a rough cut) created during her Fale-ship residency. 

Part 1 of Tuafale’s documentary short – Chasing Chaka 2018: A Healing Adventure (a rough cut).

“It was an enjoyably intense experience. I was glad to be home to focus on different aspects of the build & the many choices which shrunk as time disappeared. Reflecting on my builds – there’s been a definite covid tinge to them.Having a week to focus on one project has been a gratifying gift.” 

– Tuafale Tanoa’i

“Chaka Khan is one of my favourite musicians that I’ve been playing as a DJ since the 70s! And I thought…wouldn’t it be cool to go find her perform and see her live!”
