“Whakapapa runs deep. What happened to our families was a burden and responsibility we carried with us across time and space. Now we want to rekindle the fires for all of our people that left and bring them back home to make the whānau whole.”

Rōpata Taylor



Reconnecting whānau to whenua is integral to Making the Tenths Whole.
