Nora Rameka talks about her life in the Far North with Regional reporter Lois Williams in part one of the series, Te Reo o te Raki.

There are some people in this world who seem born to take charge – and take care of others. Nora Rameka is one of them. The Ngāti Rehia kuia, born to a teenage Ngāti Kuri  mother in Te Kao 72 years ago, was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the  Queen’s Birthday Honours, for a lifetime of service to Māori.
