Kristin Ross (Ngāti Kahu, Ngāti Tara) is an entrepreneur, a producer and a creative.
If you have tamariki, you will likely know her best as the co-founder and co-creator (with her husband Hōhepa) of the first Māori speaking dolls, and associated cartoon, Pipi Mā.
Kristin and her husband produce Māori language content for digital and television broadcast, and while te reo Māori is now the primary language in their home, it wasn’t something she grew up with.
In this episode we talk about being unapologetically Māori. Kristin’s passion for our language, our culture and her drive to create a fully Indigenous world for our tamariki and Mokopuna so te reo me ona tikanga can be a daily reality for our future generations.
