Our thoughts go out to Pikau and all those affected by the fire, including our friends at Canterbury Adventure Park. Pikau is unable to be reached until further notice.

Pikau (verb) to carry on the back, get on the back of someone else, piggyback, carry, take care of, convey. Pikau, has his/her mana on its back. Proudly displaying it, prompting us to reflect on our own mana, and how we too should feel comfortable to display it. Stand as who you are! Stand proud and show it loud!
