Kia Ora, I am an educator in cultural capacity here at WINTEC, Aotearoa, New Zealand. I was born and raised in the Kingitanga movement and a passionate advocate for Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Ma
My name is Claudine Waitere I am passionate educator of Te Reo Maori and Tikanga Maori. That’s how I like to bring myself to any and every situation. I lean into Te Ao Maori and Matauranga Cultural Competencies easily because of my lived experiences growing up within my ancestral lands, nurtured by my marae environment, supported by my whanau, hapu and iwi. To truly know oneself is an extension of ones values applied in one’s everyday experiences.
