Millie Elder-Holmes has shared a stunning photo of mum Hinemoa Elder’s new moko.

Millie is now living in Greece, but has always been fiercely proud of her family and her Kiwi heritage. 

In a recent Instagram post from her clean-eating blog Clean Eatz NZ, she shared a special picture of her mum new moko saying: “Something very special happened in my life today."

“My mum has made her #Mokokauae (Moko Kauae - women's Maori face tattoo) something she has been talking about for years, its a symbol of a deep connection with your culture and ancestors."

“I don't often speak about my #Maori heritage because I feel so much more connected with my Greek side but when I see things like this and when I sat with my mum for her first #TaMoko (traditional Maori tattoo).”

“I'm blown away with the power and energy around these traditions. I'm so f***ing proud of you mum, it looks like it was meant to be there, it's so apart of you, you blow me away with you intuitiveness and strength I'm hoping to be even half the woman you are."
