He aha te mea nui o te ao
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata

What is the most important thing in the world?
It is the people, it is the people, it is the people

On this page you can explore the interviews that our kaumaatua have shared with us. These small clips give us an insight into what it was like growing up as Ngaati Wairere and Maaori in Aotearoa.

Our hope is that you are able to see through the eyes of our elders and have a greater understanding of the history that is gifted to us.
