//069 Georgia Latu, young entrepreneur

May 17, 2021

Georgia Latu (Kai Tahu, Ngāpuhi)  is the 14-year old C.E.O behind Pōtiki Poi. A pakihi that makes, sells and distributes poi and earrings, while sharing  mātauranga Māori. 

Her business has environmental and social values at its heart, using op shop and second hand materials, with biodegrading plastic, and employing people with diverse abilities from Cargill Enterprises.

In this episode we talk about the inspiration behind Pōtiki poi, Georgia shares the realities for juggling kura and mahi, and she gives an insight into what it’s like being an Indigenous kōhine, today.

Wāhine – we’ve got the goods. We can bring it to the table. We are all in this waka together.
