[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 episode of the "Maioha" series , we feature Jenny Kaa, who is of Te Rarawa descent and has had experience as a field officer with the Department of Labour and as a Māori Liason officer with the Auckland City Council.

Jenny also attended a 3 month visiting fellowship course in the United States to study indigenous counselling methods.

Jenny is now a lecturer at Te Rau Kahikatea Theological College at St.John's and is the first Māori woman to gain a Bachelor of Theology degree.
