ERICA’S JOURNEY . . . . This information resource features Erica Jones, a Year 13 Gisborne Girls High School student from Manutuke, and five Tairawhiti kaumatua. The stories from the pakeke (elders) are a bitter-sweet account of an era when Maori children were punished for speaking their native language and, despite the odds, how te reo continues to flourish today.
