Author's Bio

Rob Tipa (Ngai Tahu, Ngati Kahungunu) is a freelance journalist with more than forty years' experience as a reporter and editor with metropolitan, community and farming publications. To reconnect with his Ngai Tahu heritage, he researched a series of articles on traditional uses of New Zealand native plants that were on the Ngai Tahu taonga plants list. This became a series of nearly fifty columns published in Te Karaka magazine over a period of ten years.
