"Over the last few years my role in promoting Ka Hikitia, and Tataiako has continued to motivate me to look closely at the concept of transformation- of Maori succeeding as Maori" said Marama Fox.

"As a proud mama of nine children this and Whanau Ora has always resonated with our whanau, as a model for breeding success. I want to dedicate the best years of my career to truly embedding Whanau Ora into our national psyche -and Ikaroa Rawhiti is the ideal environment to place my energy".
