The 23-year-old has a passion for re-telling  stories – not just any stories, but rather those unique to Tairāwhiti, Ngāti Porou and Aotearoa. He’s even written a couple of children’s books and is teaming up with an artist friend from EIT’s Toihoukura to see the project through to completion.

There has been a tendency to treat urbanization as the antithesis of traditional Māori life even though 80% of Māori live in an urban situation.
