Take a glimpse into the life of a modern day Maori leader, warrior, speaker and executive. In this interview we delve into the ancient wisdom of the Maori people and look at the some of the solutions for modern day dilemmas that arise from these teachings. We discuss the lost generation of Maori who were forbidden to learn their own language and culture and who were told just to "get on in the Pakeha world" and and the consequences of that colonisation call still apparent in today's world.
