Ko Diggeress Te Kanawa

Ko Diggeress Te Kanawa

He rangatira a Diggeress Te Kanawa (nō Ngāti Maniapoto), ā, he kaiarataki i te whakamāuitanga o te mahi raranga i te tekau tau 1950. Ko tōna whāea ko Rangimārie Hetet. Nā Rangimāire i whakaheke te mauri o te mahi raranga ki tana tamāhine. I moe a Diggeress i a Tana Te Kanawa, ā, 12 ā rāua tamariki, i whāngaia e rāua ki Te Kūiti. He whānui ōna māramatanga mō ngā tūmomo tikanga whatu, raranga hoki. Nāwai ka tonoa rāua ko tōna māmā e Te Rōpū Wāhine Māori kia akona ngā mahi raranga kia kore ai e ngaro. Ko Diggeress tētahi o ngā kaiwhakaū o Aotearoa Moananui a Kiwa, arā, te rōpū kairaranga o te iwi Māori me ngā iwi o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa. I te tau 2000 ka riro i a ia te Tohu Hoa Pūmau o Aotearoa.
