Kora koutou, my name is Rachel Dibble I whakapapa to Taranaki through Ngāti Ruanui and Ngā Ruahine, and make connections to Ōtepoti through our shared history.
It is a joy to work with Paula, Sela and the mtiv8 team in a consultant role, through design, evaluation and facilitation of cultural knowledge and application workshops for Māori or those with an interest. I draw on kaupapa Māori methodology, manaakitanga and Hauora frameworks. I share my knowledge of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Ako Māori, their application and incorporation to the mtiv8 practice and programmes.
I am mtiv8d by the aha! moment, and am loving Alien Weaponry – Māori Metal!
