‘Ko wai koe?’

Justin Gush


Ko wai koe?: features Tiarne Gush, of Ngā Wairiki-Ngāti Apa and Te Iwi Morehu, who shares her whakaaro on the importance of maintaining strong connections with our cultural identity. Too often young people fall victims to the streets and gang life, through the lack of whānau support and knowledge of the legacy our ancestors have left. Tiarne believes the most important aspects of life for her, is knowing our whakapapa, maintaining good relationships with whānau, gaining mātauranga, seeking the māramatanga, and living a life based on the values and beliefs of Māoritanga.
