She was passionate about people and the advancement of Maori society and demonstrated this through her involvement in a variety of initiatives from Maori education, Maori language, Maori performing and traditional arts, Maori politics and within her own whanau. This book is a celebration of Ngoi's life through the testimonies of many people who knew her using their own words. The bilingual text allows people to come to know what a truly remarkable koka (mother figure) she was to so many people in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
