647 views

Published on

"Lines of Connection between Whanau Ora & Sexual Health" was the speech by Wheturangi Walsh-Tapiata to the New Zealand Sexual Health Society Conference 2012.

Wheturangi Walsh-Tapiata comes from Ngarauru, Te Atihaunui-a-Paparangi, Ngati Raukawa ki te tonga, Ngati Rangi and Te Ati Awa.

She is an educator, having taught social work, social services and Maori development at Massey University, for Te Korowai Aroha o Aotearoa, at Te Wananga o Raukawa and now at Te Wananga o Aotearoa. Her research and writing interests are around Whanau, Hapu and Iwi development, Maori development, Indigenous development, Community development and Maori rangatahi.

In the last couple of years she was awarded an Indigenous Fellowship to study at the United Nations, in Geneva Switzerland. On returning to Aotearoa New Zealand, she was invited to be a governance member of the Taihauauru Whanau Ora Regional Leadership group and has visited many communities in the Taranaki, Wanganui, Manawatu and Horowhenua communities promoting and advocating for Whanau Ora.

Wheturangi tamariki (children) have all grown up in kohanga reo, kura kaupapa and wharekura and therefore Maori education and the survival of Te Reo within whanau is another passion area.
