Dr. Rangimarie Turuki Rose Peri is a Maori elder who has been involved in education, community development and language revitalization for the past 40 years. We interviewed her at her home just north of Tuai, a small town in the picturesque mountains of the north island of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Rose, as she likes to be called, welcomes people from all over the world into her home to talk about ancient Maori ways and the importance of learning to understand and respect different peoples, cultures, traditions and the environment around us.
