Shilo Kino, The Pōrangi Boy

From Nine To Noon, 10:06 am on 3 December 2020

Shilo Kino has written a novel for young adults, which, she hopes, their parents will read too.

Journalist with TVNZ current affairs show Marae, Shilo's first book is The Pōrangi Boy, about Northland twelve year old Niko who tries to stop a prison being built on land that is tapu.

Shilo Kino tells Philippa Tolley she wishes this book had been around when she was a child, and talks about her commitment to learning Te Reo.
