Our energy to heal and create change, comes from the whenua - the living growing earth with all its beauty; from te Ngahere (Forests) and the rivers and mountains - the special places where Papatuanuku still retains that gift of life that once flourished throughout all of Aotearoa. As healers, the whenua (land) is our first patient. Keeping the whenua well will ensure the wellbeing of our future and resilience for generations to come. Right now, cultures all around the world can hear that the land is not just crying, she is calling us to action. She speaks to us through the birds, insects, plants and trees, the waters, the wind... Tiwaiwaka (the Fantail) is the voice for Papatuanuku, the messenger of kotahitanga (unification).
