Kaihau is a Cultureflow marketer. Kaihau spends most of his day thinking of progressive and cool organisations Cultureflow can work with to celebrate Te Reo Māori.
I am in my final year studying a triple major in Political Science, International Relations and Te Reo Māori here at VUW. Growing up in the small, rural area of Coromandel, I gained a deep appreciation for kaupapa Māori which surrounds the well-being of small communities. I am a first language Te Reo Māori speaker and wish to promote my language and culture in all area of social and political environments.
