Kia ora koutou,
Ko Taranaki Ko Karioi ngā maunga
Ko Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Māhanga, Ngā Māhanga a Tairi ngā iwi
Ko Ngāti Rāhiri te hapū
Ko Waitara, ko Waikato ngā awa
Ko Waitara te tūrangawaewae
Ko Leonie Pihama ahau
This blog sits alongside the Te Wharepora Hou blog. It is to provide a space to voice some of my personal views and approaches in regards to Kaupapa Māori theory, methodology and analysis whilst maintaining a link with the voices of the collective of Māori women that make up Te Wharepora Hou. In opening this blog I have shared earlier writings from Te Wharepora Hou, the majority of which I have penned but also those that have been written collaboratively with Mārama Davidson or are press release statements from the collective as a whole.
