Two thoughts for today ..
I'm looking forward to the 'Jan is sporty olympics' - you will all be asked to be judges so I hope you're ready.
This past week I may have mentioned (ha ha) my work seminar on indigenous knowledge and sustainable urban design, and how Ngati whatua are starting to rebuild a pa settlement. Well last night at the refuge do I was talking to Ange about the new policy work happening within Maaori caucus working with whanau, hapu and iwi and I got all excited wondering what it would look like if women, men and children, at Orakei designed the pa in part to keep women and children safe. I wonder what would that look like? How great if refuge could get involved at that level of prevention work.
