We all know there’s this magic in being Māori, being in the community,y and being able to work with each other. What got me out of it was returning to my roots, my Māoritanga. We get caught up too much in the modern-day everything – I should have this because I should be rich and I should be all these things. But I was like, what I should be is what I am, a young Māori man in Aotearoa, where you have that appreciation for the land.”
