//075 Awhitia Mihaere, traditional healer

June 29, 2021

NUKU //075 is Awhitia Mihaere (Ngāti Kahungunu). She is a healer, a traditional birther, a tohunga ruahine, and a teacher of rongoā Māori. She was born on the floor of her whānau home in Tokoroa, guided into te ao Mārama by her grandmother. It was this nanny that nurtured Awhitia’s wairua from that day on.

In this episode we talk about her journey and the worlds she walks in. Awhitia shares with us ancient matauranga and encourages us to strengthen our connections with our atua and our tupuna.

Like many of our podcasts, take care when listening, and have breaks when needed.


When Ranginui and Papatūānuku are at peace then humanity will be at peace. Until then we are not at peace and we will never be able to live in harmony. We need to be more in tune with our Taiao.
