Terehia Walker

Kaitohutohu (Cultural Advisor)

Tēnā koutou katoa,

Ko Ngapuhi, Tainui me Te Atiawa ōku iwi,

Ko Terehia Walker tōku ingoa.

Ko Māori me Itāria (Italian) ahau.

I bring an extensive professional background of kaitohutohu and kaiako (tutor) roles in non-profit spaces to Depot Artspace. As a local of Te Hau Kapua (Devonport) I’m passionate about sharing my culture and do everything with community at heart.

For the past six months I’ve taught and guided Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori at the US consulate for the US Ambassador and her team; prior to this I worked in Te Reo Māori kaiako roles at Hauraki Primary and Literacy Aotearoa, with over twenty years of teaching experience. As well as volunteering for local schools through kapa haka, I volunteer at Te Taua Moana, the local Navy marae, where I support rangatahi (youth) coming into the services and whānau environment. I’ve held previous Kaitohutohu roles across Harbour Hospice, Wilson Home, NZ Institute of Education, and Sevilles via MSD.

The taonga (treasures) in my world are my husband of 35 years, our daughter and our son-in-law as they have blessed us with 6 mokopuna (grandchildren) who are also our neighbours.
