These twelve tales from the island of Niue, in both Niuean and English, give traditional Polynesian storytelling a new twist. Zora Feilo explores the ancient artform of barkcloth (hiapo), not seldom made in Niue, tattoo, and the relationship with the ocean and island itself.  But, mostly the tales are about the people of Niue - their love, courage, pride and curiosity. Each story is lavishly illustrated by Niuean artist Lange Taufelila.

Tales of Niue Nukututaha was first launched in Auckland, New Zealand on 19 December 2015.  Zora then held a second book launch during the 2017 Niue Arts Festival in Niue.
