Awerangi Tamihere MNZM has been at the forefront of championing an indigenous system for indigenous wellbeing called Whānau Ora. Awerangi has been with the Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency since its inception and over the ten years she has seen 100 indigenous service providers move from working co-operatively to being part of a collective system that measures the impact of their work in the communities that they serve.
