New Māori podcast aims to inspire


Last up; It’s a new podcast series that’s proud to be indigenous made
for indigenous people. Hania Douglas reports. Indigenous 100 – a hundred interviews in a
podcast format that aim to inspire. We’re following exemplary people. There’re countless reports
and stories putting us down, and so many accounts of people
fighting for our rights. The show creators say they wanted to produce a resource by indigenous
people for indigenous people, and producer Te Arahi Maipi says the goal of 100 podcasts
is only step one. We’re really into
long format interviews, but they’re all the same –
all white, all Americans, all saying that a man’s worth
is in the depth of his pockets, and that’s fine,
especially in business, but an indigenous world view says
there are more virtues to take into consideration. The themes vary, from te reo Māori to business
and culture, with speakers like the Morgans,
Pania Newton and others. It’s been great, some of the dialogue has been deep,
some funny, and Maori, and indigenous people in general
can be pretty funny. One of the best ones
was Sir Tipene O’Regan – the first thing he said was that just five days before
the landmark settlement between Ngāi Tahu and the govt,
everything nearly fell apart. But the 100 won’t just
be made up of Māori. While the project is based on Māori, we’re also keen to reach out
to our Pasifika relatives, to our relatives in Australia, to the first nations of America,
and beyond. Fronted by Julian Wilcox,
with three episodes released so far. New episodes are to be released
every Thursday via social media and on the Indigenous 100 website. Hania Douglas, Te Karere. Indigenous 100 – well done,
Mahi Tahi Media. That’s all we have for today. Turou Hawaiki.
