Our Connections

We are consistently growing and nurturing strong connections within our iwi, communities, and industries to ensure our kaimahi have the essential skills, and knowledge of what is needed to produce cutting edge leaders and contributors to society. 

This helps to ensure our students leave us having created their own connections and with a headstart on achieving their goals, and contributing positively within their whānau, hapū, iwi and communities.

I am a graduate of the Anamata Suicide Intervention course delivered by Dr Candy Cookson-Cox and have benefited hugely from these learnings in my previous roles. I believe education to be a key component in ones' wellbeing, and am more than willing to promote this pathway for the benefit of my people.

I tohua e au ko Te Pū Wānanga o Anamata, hei wānanga ako mōku, nā te mea he wānanga mō tātau na uri whakaheke ō Tūhoe.

Kia āhei hoki ahau ki te whiwhi tohu kaiako, hei whakaako i ō tātau tamariki, kia whāngaia te reo, te mita o te reo o Tūhoe. Nā reira “He Tūhoe ahau, nō Tūhoe ahau, ko Tūhoe ahau” I runga I ēnei kōrero he wānanga nō Tūhoe hoki tēnei.

I have been with Anamata coming up two years soon. I have had the privilege of studying with Anamata and completed the Dip in Kaupapa Māori Public Health - Whānau Violence L6 during 2021.

I bring with me experience in many office environments but what I gain from working here at Anamata; is so much more. 

I am not just apart of an organisation. I am apart of a whānau.

Ko Maungapōhatu te maunga. Ko Tūhoe te Iwi. Ko Te Urewera rātau ko Patuheuheu, ko Ngāti Rongo, ko Hāmua, ko Ngāti Tāwhaki ngā hapū. Ko Hōhua Kalan taku īngoa. No Waiohau ahau. 

A proud father of four with a background in adult education and youth work, I have also held the position of Police Iwi Liaison Officer for the Eastern Bay of Plenty for the past ten years. I am also in the process of completing post-graduate studies. 

As a former programme leader and kaiako at Anamata myself, I can appreciate how Anamata is uniquely positioned to navigate the dynamics and demands of the tertiary sector while maintaining a firm grasp on its kaupapa, which will become increasingly important in the days ahead.

Anamata provides all ākonga with the opportunity to gain mastery within indigenous and clinical paradigms.  There is nowhere in the world I can learn the healing, clinical modalities, and frameworks of my iwi.  My qualifications have allowed me to gain access to Postgraduate Study, where I am working towards full registration with DAPAANZ (Addiction Practitioners Association Aotearoa NZ).

I chose to study at Anamata because it aligned with my values and cultural identity, and also suited my learning style. Due to the inspiration of my studies with Anamata, I have begun my own business with the skills and knowledge to be able to meet the needs of all clients holistically regardless of culture.
