Story sovereignty

Story sovereignty

In this episode, we kōrero with writers Trinity Thompson-Browne and Qiane Matata-Sipu. How does one stay in control of the narrative from the inception of the idea to finished pukapuka? And how does self-publishing enable them to hold rangatiratanga over their work?

This week we’re marking the 40th anniversary of te reo news bulletin Te Karere by getting into the weeds of where Māori media is headed. Leonie and Te Kuru are joined by media legends Mihingarangi Forbes and Peter-Lucas Jones.
Go home, stay home

Go home, stay home

As Māori we talk a lot about our connection to whenua, but most of us live away from our ancestral lands. We talk to Joe Pihema and Karen Leef about what “going home” means to them, the history of our urban communities and how to be good manuhiri on someone else’s land.
Tangata Tiriti

Tangata Tiriti

In the lead up to Waitangi Day, we’re talking about the other side of the Treaty partnership. You know… the non-Māori one. We chat to filmmaker Julie Zhu about the group Asians Supporting Tino Rangatiratanga, and producer Lillian Hanly about growing up Pākehā in te ao Māori, and what being Tangata Tiriti means to them.
Hākari and the art of the feast

Hākari and the art of the feast

It’s the festive season, and we’re celebrating hākari: upholding our mana and the mana of guests through the sharing of food. This week’s manuhiri may have cooked for Harry and Meghan, but at home on the marae the aunties are still in charge – we’re joined by chefs, authors, Masterchef winners and proud daughters of Maketu, Kasey and Kārena Bird.
