People like Us - Apirana Mahuika

Television (Full Length) – 1981

The land belongs to us, so we should be trained, properly, so that we can take over positions of management, executive positions and so on. Not only the carriers of water and hewers of wood.
– Apirana Mahuika
One thing about the coast, we, in my opinion, are the greatest exporters of people and unskilled people. It's about time our education system changed to accommodate the needs of our people here, back on the land.
– Apirana Mahuika
Ngāti Porou: an arrogant, powerful and strong tribe.
– Apirana Mahuika
I know who I am. I know who my forebears are; that is my senior lectureship.
– Apirana Mahuika
