Kia ora, I am a descendant of Ngaati Kahungunu ki Wairarapa, Muauupoko and Rangitaane o Wairarapa. While I primarily identify as being Maaori, my bloodline is also connected to that of Asia and Europe.
I was born during the later part of the 1960’s in Te Whanganui a Tara, Aotearoa and over the years I have lived extensively throughout my country. I currently reside in a small rural valley where each day the landscape reminds me of who I am from, who I am, and that whom I live upon.
As a traditional Maaori healer, my work in group facilitation and other events holds a fiercely passionate ‘no frills’ base line approach that serves to strengthen the innate Native and Indigenous connection within us all.
Over a period of 30 years, my comprehension of healing has expanded into an energetic activism that allowed for the re-emergence of my voice as it was meant to
be; an embodiment of ancestral lore, language, sound, movement, and that is unapologetically aligned to principles not personalities. Mauri ora!
1987: When the day comes is a 2018 film directed by Jang Joon Hwan
