The “Stories of Chinese New Zealanders” is a series of interviews with descendants of Chinese people living in Aotearoa New Zealand. The programme looks at the history of their hard work, their settlement and development, integration into New Zealand society, and dedication to contribute and actively promote Chinese culture. The programme also introduces first generation Chinese New Zealanders’ experiences in studying, working and living in Aotearoa New Zealand.

On 23 March at 9-10pm, the broadcast is an interview of Peter Sue. This broadcast will be repeated on 30 March. Peter Sue is a fourth generation Chinese in New Zealand. He was born in Hong Kong, when his parents were waiting to travel to New Zealand.

Due to the Pearl Harbour incident, the whole family had to return to China. Later his father came to New Zealand. In 1954, when Peter was 13, he came to New Zealand with his mother and sister. Peter worked at the family’s fruit shop and later opened other businesses. He is a chief instructor for Chinese martial arts and karate, and also an acupuncturist.

We are grateful to the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust and the Wellington City Council for their financial support and Wellington Access Radio for supporting and hosting the programme.

The programme “Stories of Chinese New Zealanders” will be on air from 9 February to 31 August, every Friday at 9-10pm, on Wellington Access Radio 106.1FM.
