Te Aniwa has three stunning children Te Ngarunui (6), Te Amorangi (4) and Hikurangi-Waiapu (2). As a whanau they enjoy waka ama and all the babies paddle for PCKC, gardening, singing and dancing and reading whatever books we can get our hands on. Te Aniwa’s interests include mahi raranga and she is hoping to make a return to waka ama this year.
Te Aniwa has been an administrator in some degree for the past 20 years (Aue!). The majority of her work has been supporting people who make a difference for Māori in both in Te Ao Māori and Te Ao Pakeha. Te Aniwa has worked in diverse areas such as The Education Review Office, The Institution of Professional Engineers, Victoria University of Wellington, Te Puni Kokiri and PHARMAC.
