Learning about Māori culture

Learning about Māori culture

In the 1980s Donna Awatere (at right, wearing sunglasses) and Maria Mareroa (in white, behind her) ran a business called Ihi Management Consultants, which taught government employees about Māori culture. They are shown here with Treasury staff who were taking part in one of their courses at Okataina Lodge, near Rotorua, in 1988.
