Kia ora e te whānau! My name is Haylee. I hail from both from the valley of Utakura in the Hokianga, and the small pā of Pukepoto located just outside of Kaitaia. I have been living in Beach haven with my wider whānau my whole life, amongst many sporting families and whānau Māori. For the last few years I have worked with rangatahi Māori, supporting them to reconnect to all forms of whakapapa both human and non-human. My work within the space of public health, which started in 2018 has recently led me Toi Tangata! In particular I’ll be leading a process alongside communities to create a new kai resource to support parents with tamariki between 0 and 2 years. We’ll be traveling around New Zealand over the next four months to listen to and explore the knowledge housed within our whānau and Māori communities who have the most important job of feeding our tamariki and future leaders, a-wairua, a tinana, a hinegaro hoki.
