Whatitiri Te Wake (Whati)
Community Engagement Coordinator Maori
I am excited to be working with my iwi takataapui in a way that is effective and beneficial to us and to educate and empower our communities.
I was born, raised and educated in Panguru Hokianga where Te Reo me ona Tikanga are the cornerstone of who we are. It is a privilege to use these skills in a way that evokes change, and empowers our whanau.
My background is in social development and more recently community engagement. I have a passion for working with people and contributing to positive change to our whanau.
