This kaupapa, voluntarily led by rangatahi, shares wisdom garnered from more than one hundred interviews with Māori across Aotearoa. The kaikōrero that feature throughout have committed their lives to advance others in a variety of ways.

On 21 November 2020, we launched the Te Kai a te Rangatira" book, and this is available for purchase below.  Over time we will release more video vignettes, portrait photography and other information about the kaikōrero from the interviews we conducted. Coming Soon!
