Denise Piper Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Far North woman Sonya Ihimaera was laughed at and mocked for wearing a face mask in Kerikeri last week - which she wore to protect the community after arriving in Northland from Auckland. But she was shocked to hear that her experience was not isolated, with a number of people called "crazy" for wearing a mask. Have you ever been mocked for wearing a mask?

Te Tohu Toi Tangata - Bachelor of Humanities

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy.

She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”

“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”. Study remotely with us in 2021!
