MAIKI SHERMAN – COVERS POLITICS IN THE MAORI LANGUAGE – SHANE JONES FOR TAMAKI ELECTORATE, THAT’S CULTURALLY VISIBLE IN NUANCED ARTS 2010′s
In the age of iPhone and digital media telephony – globally, a nation’s visibility is perceived as credibility. Maori and Polynesian Arts as Visual Arts getting more visual in Tamaki is a necessity to attract a global economy to New Zealand. The substance transmitted in all media that cannot be replicated, it stands on its own, will always be Spirit. If we possess it, we must serve it to Shine.
If we are credible, we must match the integrity of our belief with greater and more creative visibility as leading entertainers contributing to culture in the world. Whether they know it yet or not, the world needs US and our culture as expressed from artistic spirits–Horiwood on Arts & Visual Arts in The Super City – 2010′s.
Hot! Watch this clip to see news reporter Maiki Sherman covering politics and news in Auckland – The Supercity in Te Reo Rangatira (the language of Chiefs).
This clip also features Shane Jones who will stand in the Tamaki electorate, next election. Presenter Scotty Morrison and executive producer Tini Molyneux for Te Karere News bring us this unique story in Hollywood, wtih Maiki – for your viewing pleasure and Hollywood entertainment diversity.
Shane was Harvard educated in America, where he studied with his wife and children. He also speaks the indigenous peoples language of New Zealand – a future trend for all politicians in New Zealand to become more proficient in, for the upcoming years of NZ politics. It’s time.
For Maori leaders like Shane, promoting Maori women into leadership roles across all sectors of society is his and his male peers’ (regardless of color) next biggest challenge. I see Shane being very instrumental, visionary and gentlemanly in this role as the world seeks out Maori women leadership and their wisdom as women on many global issues concerning other women, in the world. Maori and Kiwi women have a gift to lead that’s on the rise.
[Um, I'm posting this clip, because Mr Jones said "And how is that talented son of yours?" to my Maori Helensville-raised mom, when the two last met, at Dame June Jackson's anointing in Auckland - The Supercity.
[This pic - Samuel Marsden of Yorkshire, a later arrival and founding father of New Zealand]
Shane and I both grew up in Nga Puhi country – when he was not in America studying, learning at the feet of Maori Marsden - one of the greatest minds on theology, whose gift of Peace to mediate, along with Gra Theodore‘s is legendary in the ilk of New Zealand leadership circles.
Maori Marsden was the great grandson of Samuel Marsden of whom exploits and legends of New Zealand history books write about. Samuel had a spirit of deep respect for Maori, similar to that of Sir Douglas Graham. I pay respect to these greats today too from Los Angeles, The Entertainment Capitol of the World.]
For all of you Hollywood readers –manners with a reply back is how I was raised. My reply: E pehea ana a Lucas raua ko Kylie Brown? Kia ora te whanau katoa. Kia kaha.
Maiki Sherman appears at the end of the clip, rocking it in the Maori language. Is New Zealand getting a cultural revolution in between filming Hobbits in 3D for Hollywood audiences, or what? So exciting to see Maori and Polynesian culture thriving. That’s the spirit. It would be awesome to see a leader from the Tamaki Electorate develop and foster Maori Art House Cinema in Tamaki and take Maori and Polynesian cultural operatic performance to cirque de Soleil heights too, in Tamaki.
We need cultural visibility in theater, film, fashion, globally competitive music and dance choreography that’s relatable, emulatable and appealing — across all arts genres diversity to compete with the way visual arts, are being used in political circles today.
In observing political trends in and from the USA – A nation’s arts, proceeds it’s message of political value. There’s no way around that. Art and culture is the artistic armory of Kings to trade within a culturally nuanced global market place.
Now there’s a challenge for a Tamaki electorate leader to foster and ensure for Auckland City’s global presence – for our Prime Minister and nation’s culture and economy growing and feeding into each other, naturally, like enriched dialogue depicting intelligence of expression and maturity of nationhood, in our pride and sense of place – from a paradise nation rich and beautiful in ecological resource.
[Message to Tamaki Electorate - Horiwood Hollywood, is pictured holding Wellington-based Maori-produced magazine Tu Mai in Hollywood California. Held is an image of visual artist, model and talent, Yasmin Bidois, 15, symbolizing people wealth of our young people’s talented potential. Yasmin wears a Hei Tiki in pounamu worn by Wahine Rangatira of the Chiefly ancients – but now, a young woman faces the challenges before her in a modern world. This image depicts a visible age of Maori and Polynesian in the age of iPhone mobile telephony and all media globally.
The artistic statement is: “Maori on French Art fusion via Hollywood, California USA.” All Maori produced media in making this low budget visual message. Put simply – Visibility is our credibility. Let’s get louder and more visual to express and grow Tamaki’s artistic cultural potential in The World and to compete in a global economy. Korowai evening dress, Yves St Laurent, couture of France, 1952. In honor of French-Maori connection in the arts, as Yasmin also symbolizes by blood. We are New Zealand art. Let’s get visual with sophisticated production budgets in creating our own globally appealing artists and messangers of cultural texts that have an appealing message about who we are as Kiwis. Mauri ‘Ola tatou.

Fashion designers best work often was inspired by nature. Here’s Christian Dior‘s evening dress and cocktail dress of 1952 demonstrating a nature theme. Depleting meadows was the gist.
Any man who assigned this degree of time-consuming needlework to any women, must have been either an artist or a tad bit festidious in the delegation department, but look how beautiful his creations were. This artwork is the result of Rebe, Dior’s embroiderer. What a lady.
Maori korowai feather cloaks are sewn feather by feather for a chief in the same time consuming manner.
The Maori feather cloak aesthetic is shown here also, by Yves St Laurent’s dinner dress, 1969. Hollywood entertainment and celebrity news items you found interesting today feature in our top ten. Thanks everyone. Make every day count and let’s give more. :)

Pop star Kylie Minogue‘s new single, Get Outta My Way, can be watched above. Art. Excellence, frame by frame. What a quality artist.
Guest Commentary for all woman, their breasts and their body’s health:
Yahoo News reports: via SYDNEY (Reuters Life!) – “Pop star Kylie Minogue has been voted the most inspirational breast cancer star for her willingness to speak openly and honestly about dealing with the disease.
The Australian singer, 42, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and underwent surgery and hair-losing chemotherapy.
But Minogue, whose career began on the TV soap opera “Neighbours,” returned to the stage within a year and continues to perform. She toured 21 countries last year, and just released her 11th studio album, “Aphrodite.”
Minogue topped an online poll of 1,000 participants by British-based mastectomy-wear specialist Amoena, coming ahead of other celebrities affected by breast cancer like the late Linda McCartney and singer Olivia Newton-John.
“Kylie inspired many women to be more direct about their own fears, encouraging them to believe they would get through their ordeal,” Amoena spokeswoman Rhoda White said in a statement.
This is brilliant. Kate Blanchett stepped out in crochet couture, to open an event at the Australian Center for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square.
Says the All Toil and No Reward blog (‘how to find joy and fulfillment through love, work and sewing’):
“My word, if I ever needed any more proof that craft is the new cool, this is most definitely it. A crochet dress. A one-shouldered, full sleeved, ruffle-ornamented crochet dress. Worn without any sense of irony at all. And it looks bloody great – I especially like the double ruffle layer at the bottom.”
If you’re from down under, where Cate Blanchett is from, your nana had at least one of these crocheted blankets in her home. It’s the Aussie form of quilting. The hours of work gone into this dress, makes this dress a very high maintenance creation for an actress to choose to wear out. In Australian terms, Kate brings the bedroom at Nana’s house, to the red carpet. Or, ‘my nana loves me’ is the subliminal message as well as ‘I am Australian’s nana of the arts and moving image.’ Whatever the message is, I love it. Crafty crochet couture, handmade with love.
Love Cate Blanchett’s nerve, to be fashion forward by going backwards into the past. Proof that this Australia beauty’s taste in fashion, can be worn anywhere! By the way, the Australian Noir, moving image library at ACMI, is to die for. Yummy Aussie cinema from the archives proudly on show. Go Australia and the filmic arts!
Miss Tessa – fashion designer, artiste and photographer is the youngest star to rate tonight in your celebrity and entertainment news choices here in Hollywood. Here’s how you voted today worldwide. Thanks team.
1. AMBER ROSE is the Queen again of horiwod.com tonight. The model turned muse of Kanye West accompanied her bad boy, Hennesey swilling, hip hop entertainer beau to the VMA awards. So what? But Amber Rose garnered more interest than all of the VMA award winners combined. That’s some heat in show biz! She’s become the ‘ideal girlfriend’ of men all over America, not caring whether her man makes a fool of himself, but enjoying him and being supportive of his role in entertainment regardless. Amber Rose is a delightful and beautiful, fun loving hoot!
Lucrative modeling contracts from the best fashion houses in the world should be getting thrown at Amber Rose every single day, about now. Amber Rose would be perfect for Versace. Her media interest is impressive! Amber Rose should also be made offers for make up contracts from Cover Girl, Revlon, L’Oreal, Mac Cosmetics and Gucci too while she’s about it. What a break out star of entertainment. And no one really knows what Amber Rose actually does, or who she is. Wow!
3. MISS TESSA: The artist, photographer, fashionista, fashion muse and budding fashion designer from New Zealand has four posts that ranked in the top 10 until 3pm this afternoon, LA time here in Hollywood. This girls media heat has got wings. Because I know Miss Tessa is not one to steal the limelight, Miss Tessa comes in at #3 tonight so that other celebrities can get a turn in the Top 10 Celebrities tonight here in Hollywood. Congratulations Miss Tessa! Keep bringing it!
4. THE TWILIGHT SAGA’S NEW MOON MOVIE TRAILER: got a bit of help at the VMA’s last night when Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson all united on MTV’s Radio City stage, to present the hottest movie trailer in show biz at this second.
5. PINK: Alecia Moore, aka pop star Pink of Studio City in The Valley, LA, sung live while doing trapeze circus tricks in New York last night. That outstanding pitch perfect performance combined with a tweet about how Kanye West badly behaved during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech; as well as an appearance on the Today Show this morning with Matt Lauer, reminded America of just how versatile and talented Pink is as a pop star who has song writing talent, great vocal ability, performance chops, a brain, and well…. balls basically to stand up to funny yet bad behavior from her male peers in music. Pink is fearless.
6. LIL WAYNE: impregnating 3 different women in the same year, got Lil Wayne noticed today. Um, N pleaze! Hello Lil Wayne, put a condom on it! I know he can afford to have three kids in one year, but dude, that’s full on!
7. KANYE WEST‘s blogged apology to Taylor Swift, for rudely interrupting her during the VMAs, got the blogger noticed. Them hip hop boys have a rep to live up to being the bad boys of entertainment. Kanye did not disappoint. What a showman!
8. MISS ELLIETTE: Still the best fashion couture label in Calfornia, even after 15 years of being ‘retired’ from fashion, garnered Miss Elliette, America’s First Lady of Fashion Design her #8 spot tonight here in Hollywood. To still be able to rate with America’s biggest, brightest and youngest stars of American entertainment at 87 years of age, is simply incredible. Go Miss Elliette! Wow! There are no words.
9. GEORGE CLOONEY at THE TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in Canada, promoting his new film Up In The Air, earned the Hollywood Clarke Gable look-a-like actor, the #9 spot tonight on Horiwood.Com. Clooney’s performance is Oscar worthy, critics early reviews are touting. Nice work, George Clooney!
10. MADONNA: For the Material Girl‘s self-penned tribute to her peer and The King of Pop Michael Jackson, and for delivering it with a sincere tone of respect, made Madonna the new Brooke Shields of sincerity in the MJ worldwide fanbase. Madonna was both respectful and truly amazing at last nights VMA Awards. What a woman, what a tribute, from one who knows the fame game inside out.

… Miss Elliette, of course. Classic vintage couture, like true talent and artistry in fashion design … is timeless. This will never die. She’s eternal.
On that note, Project Runway fashion design fans, Hollywood’s A-List actresses and the future red carpet ready celebrity set; eagerly await the launch of The Haus of Miss Tessa.
With eyes that look very tired and overworked, Stefani Germanotta aka Lady Gaga appears in Vogue UK Magazine. This is her best styling ever. Tasteful.
In other UK News, Lady Gaga borrowed a page out of the early Madonna years by letting slip to the UK Sun: “I’m good. Both me and my vibrator are very happy.”
Let’s hope Gaga keeps allowing people with good fashion taste to keep styling her so that she can send out the good vibrations with her music. Nice job Vogue, UK. This girl needed a major makeover. It’s the first time Stefani Germanotta looks remotely couture. Nice!
Pretty: Red Black White are the colors of the second. They have also been traditional Maori colors of New Zealand for centuries. Remember when Barack Obama and The First Family wore red, back and white on their historic election win.A-ha, it’s an Obama inspired strategy of a new world order. Fashion is following suit. (No Pun intended).
Wearing red and black Rachel Zimmerman looks pretty fashion fierce for Vogue Japan. Strike a pose Tokyo, America is coming at you today. We like it.
While Chris Brown says he is still in love with pop princess Rihanna, Riri has well and truly moved on.
Here she is featured in Vogue Italia doing the theme of extreme couture as shot by renowned fashion photographer, Steven Klein.
Let’s face it, Rihanna is this generation’s Grace Jones. Dem girls from de Caribbean do de fierce fashion de best. Obviously!
Robert Pattinson and Megan Fox may be the pick for hottest actor and actress by American teens at The Teen Choice Awards, this week, but it’s your own choices on Horiwood.Com tonight that show your eclectic tastes in entertainment and celebrity news. Love it!
These results, perhaps shows we have a very diverse global audience going on in Hollywood on this website tonight. Namste India! Welcome.
This nutrition act campaign is all kinds of wrong.
It’s simply not true, that the Obama girls have the healthiest school lunches in America. They do not have Miss Elliette’s best heirloom tomatoes in their school lunches yet, so how can they possibly have the best nutrition at all over other kids?
Without having access to Miss Elliette’s finest tomatoes Malia Obama and Sasha Obama are under nourished American girls too, just like everyone else’s kids in America.
Leave the Obama girls alone!
ps: Desirae Rogers, please ensure that Malia and Sasha Obama get some of Miss Elliette’s home grown Beverly Hills tomatoe seeds put into Michelle Obama’s Victory Garden at the White House. Thank you. :)
Brad Pitt is #9
She’s beaten out The Pope and Barack Obama today as a news topic of interest. Q’orianka Kilcher, the actress who is perhaps best suited to play Leah Clearwater in the Twilight Saga’s Eclipse film is smoking hot news in Young Hollywood today on Horiwood.Com. There’s just no stopping her. Amazing!
As voted by you, worldwide, here’s your Top 10 news picks today. Enjoy!
Whoever would have thought that homegrown, heirloom tomatoes would rate on Horiwood.Com? Not me! Miss Elliette’s tomatoes have the magic touch.
Read #6. Too funny!
Horiwood’s Top 10 today in Hollywood as voted by you the people worldwide are:
horiwood’s last twitter pick was from dale who is back in NZ :( Here it is: “@horiwood Definitely home – nothin like singing the Lord’s Prayer in Maori this am at Te Ataakura’s christening & crying over the AB’s loss.”9:50 PM Aug 1st from web in reply to horiwood
Hi people. Meet Miss E. She’s 86 and has possibly the finest heirloom tomatoes collection in the world. In her youth she blossomed with artistic genius as a fashion designer (on a budget) and was America’s version of France’s Coco Chanel.
Coco of course, has long since faded and passed on (in fact, Emmy awards are about to be given out in her postumous honor in LA), but this American butterfly of fashion design, who soared and conquered the great heights of fashion sales in America nationwide, still walks in life’s garden among us in this great city of Los Angeles.
Miss Elliette is an angel of LA. Our living Emmy of all Angelinos who are blessed to know and love her.
She is so underrated for her contributions to America and having being honored with the presence of her company and perpetual spirit of hope at her dinner table on many occasions, I just adore her. She’s an American eagle of the finest order if ever I have met one or have shared the company of one in America to date.
I think, I would have to say, that Miss Elliette is my most favorite American celebrity. But you can’t have favorites because her entire family all rank pretty ‘up there’ too. They are all nice people. Perhaps proof, that the tomato never falls too far from the vine.
One day, the men of LA stopped to honor this woman’s genius when she was given the keys to the city of LA for her contributions to the fashion industry, to business in America and of course; her inspiring business development for the City of LA in the fashion world. Her dresses are masterpieces of heirloom chiffon, and they still sell on e-bay today.
As you can see, Miss E is still blossoming with her creative hands and extraordinary vision, more stronger than ever. Her life stories are as fascinating and entertaining as an Oscars Awards show! But, for today, let’s just talk about her amazing tomatoes!!!
Britney Spears did a high fashion photo shoot in couture, for Elle Magazine.
Stylists via the New York Post say Brit Brit “forgot what time of the month it is.”
Oh Britney! Well, at least she’s not pregnant.
America still thinks you’re OK girl!
I forget that Tyra blanks just isn’t that oprah-In-training girl who goes blah blah blah blah on TV! She’s a supermodel too, and she’s still got it as she strikes a pose last night. [ Splash ]
If you haven’t seen it yet, Valentino: The Last Emporer, is a must see at the movies. Not only does it show you, how to cash up at a corporate cirucs for $800 million like mastermind Valentino did, but it also teaches you about what love means, what passion is in art and excellence.. and how fashion can inspire the most beautiful of things from the spirit. It’s art.
It also made me want to see “Miss Elliette: The First Emporess” appear in film too. Miss Elliette is America’s unsung Coco Chanel. (more…)
Interesting couture in Beyonce‘s I Am Tour wardrobe styling by Thierry Mugler. It’s like Wonder Woman takes a spin on a motorcycle through the African couture jungle to come back as jaguar Cat Woman! It’s busy.
I think Beyonce really really really wants to play a super hero next at the box office. There’s just no stopping her! She probably will.
Angels have that habit of winning in the face of challenging times. Beyonce brings it, yet again on her I AM Tour.
