Natua’s got whale rider, war dog and wayfarer in her blood. She’s brown like earth, deep like ocean, and free like sky. When she’s not out here decolonising the world with her husband, ya sis is loving on David Attenborough or THE QUEEN Rihanna. She communicates from her puku, her gut, the place where love sits - and that love is thick for Aotearoa. She is wahine. Māori. The Pacific Ocean. The land.
