Is fittingly named after one of the worlds most beautiful lady’s too have ever graced earth.

She is the reflection of my beautiful Kuia. A kind and gentle nurturer. Nani Bibi was a wahine toa, a lady of the true mana wāhine. She was a solid staple and made a huge impact in my youngest childhood life.

A generously beautiful kind and loving lady, with a beaming smile and a heart so full of love. In her heyday she taught many the joys of song and dance.

As a dance teacher, Nani Bibi oozed a wholesome-goodness that filled the lives of those amongst the wider community.

She was also registered healer. Nani was an incredible inspiration too many.

In this design,

I honour her and admire her.

The receiver of this particular kahu for which it is named so eloquently bestowed, will be forever blessed, with love in their hearts, song in their soul, and feet for dancing,

now and forever more.
