He Rourou for 13 September 2010

From He Rourou

East Coast elder Topsy Ratahi was involved in the establishment of many of Maoridom's leading institutions such as the Maori Womens' Welfare League and the Kohanga Reo early childhood movement. In He Rourou, we have an archival interview between Wena Tait and Topsy Ratahi, where the kuia talks about the impact of cultural loss on Maori families that she worked with in Wellington.
