"Kia whakatōmuri te haere whakamua."
"I walk backwards into the future with my eyes fixed firmly on the past."
This whakataukī or proverb speaks to Māori perspectives of time, where the past, the present and the future are viewed as intertwined. This conceptualisation of time does not leave the past behind, rather the past is carried into the future.
