Poata Watene (Waikato Tainui, Ngai Te Rangi)

Teenaa koutou I roto I ngaa tini aahuatanga o te waa.  Noo Waikato Tainui ki taha o tooku matua, noo Ngai Te Rangi ki te taha o tooku whaea.  Nei rā ka mihi.

Growing up in a rural country setting in the King Country was a wonderful experience.  We lived a simple life on a farm in Pureora forest; living off the land, hunting, fishing and gardening.  Whanaungatanga and kotahitanga were whaanau values embedded at an early age, and living in the bush and on the marae taught us to be respectful and mindful of others. It was physically and mentally demanding, but we learned to work hard at a young age and our whaanau values would endure throughout my personal life and career.

For the past 18 months, I’ve been the CEO for the Hamilton Abuse Interventions Project (HAIP) in the Waikato. We have restructured the kaupapa so it’s fit for purpose and will soon take on a new name as part of our modernisation programme as we continue to uphold the restoration and preservation of mana motuhake for those accessing our services and kaupapa.
