[1993 is the centennial year of women's suffrage in New Zealand and also the United Nations' Year of Indigenous Peoples.

To mark the occasion, the Waiatarau- Freeman's Bay branch of Te Rōpu Wāhine Toka i te Ora (The Māori Women's Welfare League) in collaboration with Te Reo O Aotearoa, devised a radio series called "Maioha", looking at the lives and accomplishments of a number of Māori women.

Interviews were made in both Māori and English. The interviewers were Puhi Rangiaho, Tawini Rangihau, Hemana Waaka and Hēnare te Ua.]

In this programme Hēnare Te Ua speaks with Adelaide Waititi, "Aunty Mabel" who is from the Muaūpoku iwi of Levin but has lived for the past 40 years among Te Whānau-a-Apanui.
