//028 Marama Davidson, politician

March 17, 2020

Marama Davidson (Te Rarawa, Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Porou) is a māmā, an activist, a proud wahine Māori and, the co-leader of the New Zealand Green Party. 

For years we have seen her on our television screens, in our newspapers, and at our community events. Many of her speeches in the house have gone viral and she isn’t afraid to front the public on some our toughest social and environmental issues.

But who is the wahine behind the politician?

In this episode we talk about her rise to politics and the realities of mahi and māmāhood. About climate change and social inequalities and, that time she kayaked up the Whanganui Awa, retracing the ancient trade routes, all the way to Tāmaki Makaurau.
