"I am a product of the Treaty of Waitangi"

Mariata Couch of Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke was interviewed by the kids at Lyttelton Primary School.

The kids enjoyed learning about Mariata's childhood in Lyttelton and Rāpaki. Mariata was also able to share some stories of her ancestors. This clip above makes a beautiful connection between Mariata and the Treaty.

Be sure to check out Mariata's stories of growing up in Rāpaki, of the Basket of Heads and of the fairy folk who call to you in the fog.
