WEBINAR: 0800Haumi: Allies in action

🌱 Kaikōrero / Speakers: Jen Margaret + Julia Whaipooti


Julia Whaipooti (Ngāti Porou) and Jen Margaret (Pākehā) discuss the frequent calls Māori receive from Pākehā for knowledge/support/work/advice etc and when and how Pākehā acting as haumi/allies might respond. The discussion will draw from an array of questions/situations that Julia and Jen experience in their daily lives and work.
