Whakataukī of the Week with Annabelle Lee-Mather

From Nights, 9:15 pm on 12 February 2024

Annabelle Lee-Mather (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu and Ngāti Māmoe) is an award-winning journalist, TV producer and podcaster. One of the brains behind hit reality show The Casketeers, she has worked in indigenous current affairs and storytelling for over 20 years.

She joins Emile Donovan to share some of the whakataukī, or traditional Māori aphorisms, close to her heart.

"Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tūohu koe, me he maunga teitei"

"Seek the treasure that you value most dearly, if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain"
