Glenn Hawkins

Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Maniapoto (I tohua e te Karauna)

Kaiwhakahaere Umanga

I te marama o Hereturikōkā 2016 ka whakatūria a Glenn Hawkins ki te poari o Whakaata Māori. Neke atu i ngā tau 20, kua mahi ia hei Kaikaute, ā, kei ā ia ngā tohu mātauranga e rua mai i te Whare Wānanga o Waikato. I whakatūngia e ia he tari kaikaute, akoako i runga o te kaupapa Māori i Rotorua ka tapaina ko GHA.

Ko te whanaketanga o te pakihi Māori tētahi mea e kaingākautia ana e Glenn, inā hoki he nui ōna mōhiotanga o te ao tauhokohoko me te ao pūtea. Tino mōhio a ia ki ngā mahi e pā ana ki ngā kaporeihana Māori, kaitiaki whenua Māori, ngā hinonga whakataunga Tiriti, ngā umanga arumoni, kaiwhakarato me ngā tari hua-kore.

Ko ia te Heamana o te Life Skills for Life Trust, i mua o tērā ko ia te Heamana o Whakaue Farming Ltd, otirā kua whakahaere ia i ētahi tūmomo tari tauhokohoko, aroha me ngā tari ā-iwi.
