Te Ataahia Hurihanganui

Rangitāne, Ngāti Kahungunu

Ko Ngāti Kahungunu, ko Rangitāne, ko Ngāti Hāmua ngā iwi. Ko Rutene, ko Reiri ngā ingoa whānau. Ko Te Ataahia Eraina Hurihanganui ahau... Mauri-ora!

I am the Owner and Director of Reo Rua Ltd. – a Māori Language education and consultancy provider with professional backgrounds in education, training, and curriculum development. I have been teaching languages (English, Te Reo Māori, Spanish, Italian) for many years; both locally, and abroad, with a focus in adult education for the past 8 years.

I am also an active governance member on Boards: both at a community level – for hapū or charitable trusts and nationally. I am privileged to serve my people and maintain my focus in being a leader and good tūpuna for our future generations.

Outside of work, I dedicate my time to my community and beloved whānau; especially enjoying beautiful, loving moments with my husband and two darling children. I have passions for travel, different cultures, good food, and anything creative!
