Because I want to be the change I want to see.
Maori are te Tangata Whenua o Aotearoa as per Te Tiriti o Waitangi. I personally believe the success of all our future generations lies in our honestly embracing this truth, and as a citizen whose privilege it is to be born here and will one day die here, I can support this truth and our future generations with positive, informed action now. Learning Te Reo with 'The One Million' is a very good start. People marching in solidarity is a very recognisable part of our history, and this will be the biggest march I have ever been a part of. That is my why.
