Elisapeta Heta is an architectural graduate who recently joined the board of the New Zealand Institute of Architects as a representative of Nga Aho - Aotearoa's national network of Māori design professionals. Elisapeta (Ngāti Wai, Waikato Tainui) helped set up the Waka Maia group to promote Maori culture and values, at architectural firm Jasmax. A kawenata (covenant) between Ngā Aho and the NZIA, recognising Te Tiriti o Waitangi, was signed at the NZIA conference last month.
