As a member of the original Sapphires, Lois Peeler travelled through Vietnam, entertaining American troops during the Vietnam war.

Now, using her knowledge and talents, she helps to shape the lives of young Aboriginal women through the Worawa Aboriginal College in Western Australia.

Just recently she was in Te Tairāwhiti rohe with her students, experiencing Mātauranga Māori.

Semiramis Holland followed them on their journey up Hikurangi Maunga.
