  1. Kia ora kotou kuia o Aotearoa

    Did i just see you in the series longmire.

    You have given a face and a voice to ghosts and sorrows and done so with mana over the years. My respect and admiration always.

    • Thank you, Grizz.
      Ae, that was me playing a medicine woman in Longmire and I loved doing that role and working with all those good peeps in Santa Fe 🙂 Appreciate you taking the time to leave me this awesome comment. I don’t get to my website often as I’m now doing social media:
      instagram – therealrenaowen
      facebook – therenaowen
      Arohanui, Rena O xo

  2. it was nice to know you and to come across so strong and powerful woman in film-making, I took my time to look through your work, amazing, great work.
    I am Abejide Oluwole from Swaziland in Southern Africa, I wish to know you better and possible to invite you to Africa for a film conference or workshop next year and get to know you better.

    Thank you in anticipation.

    • Hi Abejide,
      Sorry about the delay but I don’t get to my website often as I’m now doing social media:

  3. Hi Rena
    I just watched a programme on Maori television about the cast of Once were Warriors and Temuera Morrison was talking about the film awards in New Zealand were Warriors claimed best film, best actor etc and you missed out. I just wanted to say that I watched the awards myself, 20 years ago and remember being so shocked that you didn’t receive the award for best actress. I’m siure its not the first time you have heard that! I was glad to hear Temuera say that you received awards in several other countries :).

    • Thank you, Moira. I appreciate you taking the time to reach out to me. Yes, I will never forget that moment with my poor mum sitting right next to me. As the director, Lee Tamahori said; “Everyone got their award except for the woman who carried the film!” Missing out really did hurt 🙁 But life moves on and what doesn’t kill you, definitely makes you stronger!:-) xo

  4. Nga Mihi Rena,

    I’m visiting whanau in Las Vegas in October 2017, hope to do a roadtrip to LA w/ my cousin depending on your schedule love to catch up & korero in your hood, if at all possible!
