Ngā Hau e Whā
From the Editor
The whakataukī mā pango, mā whero, ka oti ai te mahi (by black and red together the work is done) refers to the importance of collaboration and partnership, and I am struck by a sense of this as I turn the pages of this issue.
On page 14 we catch up with award-winning actress and director Rachel House, whose longstanding relationships with fellow Kiwis such as Jane Campion, Taika Waititi and Keisha Castle-Hughes have followed her throughout her career and across the globe.
Our cover story, Korowai of Hope, celebrates the recently launched Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour Catchment Management Plan, the result of a partnership between Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Christchurch City Council, Environment Canterbury and Lyttelton Port Company. This unprecedented collaboration was born out of recognition of a shared vision to see Whakaraupō restored to ecological health, and that the greatest impact would come from working together. It truly is a unique example of partnership between mana whenua and local government, and paves the way for future collaboration. Turn to page 10 for the full story.
And on page 20 Donna Matahaere-Atariki shares the story behind Te Kāika, the newly opened collaborative community health hub that is creating better outcomes for Māori, Pasifika and low-income whānau in South Dunedin. With a focus on community and holistic wellbeing, staff are working together to provide affordable health and social services.
Finally, on page 54 we showcase The Stolen Stars of Matariki – he pukapuka ataahua – written by Miriama Kamo and brought to life by the illustrations of Zak Waipara.
