Kia ora and welcome to my blog. My name is Shar and I am of Ngāi Tahu descent. I am a journalism student at Whitireia Polytechnic in Wellington. Over the next few months I will be looking how Māori activism brought change to our nation and sought to address injustice and build a certain future for Māori. This blog is not just a history lesson though, as injustice and the need for activism still exists today. I hope you will join me on this journey and feel free to engage in a constructive way. I have many questions and few answers but I am always willing to learn.
