“Kia Ora” | What It Means To Us

“Kia Ora” | what it means to us

Tūraukawa Barlett, Board member, shares his thoughts on what “Kia Ora” means with the Changing Minds team.

Our belief, our mahi, is that Lived Experience is valuable – and we all have a role to play to connect with people and share those experiences about healing, compassion and wellbeing with the rest of the world.

Board member and cultural advisor, Tūraukawa Barlett, recorded a Vlog for our whānau, to share his thoughts on what the greeting “Kia Ora” means.

We are sharing it with you because it gives us all a moment to reflect on those two important words at the start of a conversation, a conversation where everyone has the opportunity to explore their relationships and connections. And to change minds and attitudes by championing lived experience and wellbeing in the wider world.
