Mikey Havoc is a proud North Shore boy who loves his country. But something's been bugging him. He's not happy with the fact that while he lives alongside Maori his actual knowledge of Maori is pretty limited.
Mikey sets out to put that right, getting up close and personal with three iwi - the wealthy, business astute South island tribe Ngai Tahu, the first language speaking Ngai Tuhoe from the central North Island and the largest tribe, the former ferocious war mongers from Northland, Nga Puhi.
Mikey wants to find out what makes each one unique but also find his place in the country and learn where he fits in as a white New Zealander in New Zealand.
