Late in 2020, nine young men from Hato Pāora College in Fielding came together with six indigenous writers from the Pacific for three creative writing wānanga, culminating in the publication of an inspiring book of poetry, story, and illustration. Always sincere, sometimes humourous, often conflicted, and most importantly, spoken from the heart.

The launch of this inaugural edition of Te Aka ki Hato Pāora is a rare opportunity to witness a new generation of Māori voices as they take their place in the literary landscape of Aotearoa New Zealand.

This project was brought to life in collaboration with multiple partners including Te Whē, Read NZ Te Pou Muramura, TOI Māori, IIML, and Te Herenga Waka. The students and kaiako of Hato Pāora invite you to come and share in this celebratory moment.

Prepare to be moved as you listen to readings from this ground-breaking bilingual collection!
