He aha te mea nui o te ao māku e kii atu he tangata, he tangata, he tangata
What is the most important thing? It is people, people, people.
This week's whakatauki explained by Dick Garratt nō Tuhoe.
1957 was quite a year for Te Arawa born Ruia Morrison (now Morrison-Davy). She spent her 21st birthday competing at Wimbledon and was awarded an MBE. In a few weeks time on 21 June 21, Ruia now aged 77, will be accompanied by fifteen supporters and return back to Wimbledon. The trip is organised by the Aotearoa Māori Tennis Association president, Dick Garratt as a means to mark her outstanding career. Both have a chat with Justine Murray.

Travelling around Aotearoa and following in the steps of late 19th century and early 20th century prophets is heady and heartening stuff. It also has a practical component as newcomer to television hosting, Ngāti Pōrou Hirini Kaa, explains to Maraea Rakuraku.
Waiata featured: ‘Papatuānuku’ performed by Awanui Reeder featuring Che Fu and ‘Moments' performed by Awanui Reeder from the album Heartbeat (2013)
Audio will be posted after broadcast.
Produced and presented by Justine Murray
