Roku was born and raised in the village of Whakarewarewa, where contributing to the wellbeing of the whānau and hapū and life on the marae was the norm.  These experiences provided a foundation for his personal growth and professional development in a wide range of sectors including policy development, treaty settlements, agribusiness, biodiversity, environmental sustainability, and freshwater fisheries.  Roku sits on several boards which reflects his background and experiences, and is complimentary to those organisations positive contributions to Māori wellbeing, the environment and wider community.

Roku will trace the journey Te Arawa took to develop Te Tūāpapa o nga wai o Te Arawa / Te Arawa Cultural Values Framework and highlight some of the key milestones along the way.
