Ko Pukehapopo te maunga
Ko Waiomoko te awa
Ko Tereanini te waka
Ko Marukauiti me Te Riwai me Wahakapi ngā hapu
Ko Ngāti Konohi te iwi
Ko Paikea te tupuna
Tūwhitia te hopo, mairangitia te angitū
Eliminate the negative, accentuate the positive
Anahera started her media career answering the phones at Aotearoa Television in 1996 while completing the last year of her degree at Auckland University. She joined Television New Zealand the following year as a researcher and eventually became the producer for the seminal youth programme Mai Time. Anahera has extensive experience live television, live streaming on linear and digital platforms and is passionate about seeing our people telling our stories.
“I believe the screen industry has a unique role to play in the future of te reo Māori in Aotearoa and internationally. When the future generations see themselves, their language and their stories, represented on screen at home, only then can we truly take our stories to the world stage”
“I wish to serve our Ngā Aho Whakaari community for another term because there is still much work to be done, and while our industry may appear very chaotic at this time, chaos can also represent opportunity for positive change”.
