“We know who you are, we are watching you” (Marae)
“When you look around the Marae and you can’t help but pull your baby close because you know stay away from that Uncle”.
Chanz Mikaere, a provocative Te Arawa artist, poet and academic is calling for iwi and hapū to “stand down” known and convicted pedophiles sitting on the paepae.
Mikaere hopes, by addressing the issue, whānau and hapū can help all involved. Is this an issue in your rohe?
