Sēini ‘SistaNative’ Taumoepeau (She/Her) ARTIVIST: Orator & Songwoman with an Intersectional Oceanic-Pacific lens & First Nations focus.

An emerging Elder, Sēini’s career spans 30+ years as Performance Artist, Presenter/Broadcaster & Creative Industries professional. An Indigenous woman of the Mōana: a direct descendant of Ancient Polynesian Celestial Navigators & Chiefly lineage. With energy medicine in her presence, hands & voice; Faivā (performance of space) & Tauhi Vā (relational space) is her praxis; Talanoa: Talk-Story, Cosmology, Human Potential & Technology her central axis. With harmony & rhythm aesthetic, Sēini works first the invisible & intangible, before the visual & material: exploring ideas of connectivity, hōhoko (genealogy), ritual, ceremony, communication, relational inter-sectionality & displacement across Tā Vā (Time-Space).

Sēini is an Analogue to Digital Inter-disciplinary Artist & Coach/Mentor from Sydney’s early Hip Hop Generation.

Sēini is Indigenous to the Kingdom of Tonga & born in Cadigal Lands, Eora (Sydney, Australia) – she is known by the names: SistaNative (Performance Name), Napangardi (Skin-name) & Cantora (Capoeira Name).

Working across the fields of Arts, Media, Culture, Education & Personal Development sectors, Sēini remains dedicated to extending the stories & narratives of Indigenous Oceania, merging her devotion to the metaphysical sciences.

Sēini’s work explores discovery beyond the outskirts, the emergent, the fringe or the margins. An eternal scholar & emerging Elder, Sēini continues to grow her study & practices with the desire to bring Oceanic wisdom & indigenous science to the forefront, through sharing empathic intuitive intelligent Heart centered creative practice to continue to create harmony & community praxis, as an extension of the Indigenous cultures of her people of the Mōana.
