Zoey Martin-Hawke

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:30 pm on 25 January 2015

When it comes to creating a tobacco free Aotearoa, the political work and lobbying of Dame Tariana Turia has proved invaluable for organisations that include The Smokefree Coalition, the National Heart Foundation and Hapai Hauora.  Zoey Martin-Hawke is the National Māori Tobacco Leadership Service Manager for He Ara Hā Ora, which operates as part of Auckland based, Hapai Hauora. The organisation was one of three who nominated Turia for an international award, this week she was named as a recipient of the Luther L Terry award. Ms Hawke talks about the contribution made by the former co-leader of the Māori Party and the impact of her absence from parliament, after she stepped down in 2014.
