MetadataShow full metadata
This paper is structured as a narrative so that the reader may not just have an understanding of the content but also an experience of it. The value of naivety, alertness, and readiness is highlighted. I describe core experiences that have shaped my identity and functioning as a psychodramatist. The narrative is one expression of what it is to have the ancestral bounty of both Māori and European lineages. It is a unique expression. There is no claim that any other person has to be like this. Whakarāpopotonga I tuhia paki waitarahia tēnei kia āta mau pai ai te ngako o te kaupapa i tua atu i te whai wheako whaiarohanga mai i te tuhinga. E whakatairangahia ana te matapoporo o te harakore te koi me te hikaka. Ka whakaahuatia atu ngā wheako whakatau nei i taku tuakiri me tēnei tūmomo mahi āku. Ko te pakiwaitara tētahi whakaatanga whiwhi whakapapa karangarua; Māori Pākehā. He whakapuakinga takitahi. Ehara tēnei i te whakapae me pēnei anō hoki ētahi atu tāngata.
