I have a natural attraction to tangata whenua and their ways of being.
I have a natural attraction to tangata whenua and their ways of being. It's been like that all my life. The knowledge, thoughtfulness, generosity and wairua deeply draws me in and I can't help but have a burning desire to uphold and preserve the language and heritage of Maori. They share a connectedness that my ethnicity will never know. Hence my passion and commitment to keeping all things Maori alive, acknowledged, respected, honoured and celebrated. There is much to learn still but I will be 1 in a million and 20 years from now I'll be 1 more speaker 💕
