Rosie Dennis, Bachelor of Arts (Māori) – Te Whakangungutanga Ki Ngā Tāiro a Kupe Graduate

Ko Hikurangi te maunga, Ko Mangaporo te awa, Ko Horouta te waka, Ko Ngati Porou te iwi, Ko Te-Whanau a te Uruahi te hapu, Ko Tinatoka te marae

Te reo chose me.  I came to Te Manga Maori in support of my sister and on that day I felt such warmth from the students, I was intrigued by the kapa haka and how united they all were.  I felt a strong pull to sign up to learn everything about my maori heritage - and I haven't looked back!
