From Sunday Morning, 11:40 am on 11 February 2018

Hinekakaho Manuel-Kohn, known as Hine Kohn, is one of those people who doesn't like having a fuss made about what she does. She was awarded the Queen's Service Medal in the New Year's honours for her community work in the Wairoa District for more than 30 years. She works at the ground roots, involved in counselling, victim support, she's part of the region's Maori women's welfare league and was involved in the first kohanga reo in Wairoa, set up in 1981.
