During the month of May 2017, we look at Mormonism across the world and how an American religion makes its way into cultural, national and social systems beyond the United States. We discover that Mormonism isn't the clean and tidy fit that some have romanticised it to be. Mormons outside of the United States invariably pay a heavy tax in trying to negotiate the cultural, social, economic and political demands placed on them by their Utah-based faith tradition.
Nepia Mahuika is a 6th generation LDS who was asked one too many times to choose between being Mormon or Māori.
