Divine Inspiration: Te Aho Tapu

@ VOL 30 ON OCT 15, 2016

Anya Satyanand, "wahine toa", is a leader practitioner in working with young people in Aotearoa New Zealand.  Anya shares her journey and learning from working with a wide range of young people and from her own diverse whakapapa (family and other identities). Stunning and thought provoking!

A Centenarian Remembers

@ VOL 30 ON OCT 15, 2016

Graham Bathgate lyrically describes his conversations and discoveries with centenarian Thelma McLean as part of a book he presented Thelma for her 105th birthday: about poetry she learned at school and loved, and could still recite; images of when she was growing up; and a life of reflections.  Thelma has passed on.  This delightful warm presentation enshrines her life and memories.  E nga mate, haere, haere, haere atu ra!
