Ko te ranga wairua mo ‘Tatari’ i puta mai i te tamarikitanga o Samuel i Waitākere, i ngā rā i noho ai ia i waho o te whare hoko - “he wāhi ripoinga, kāhore hoki he whakaaro mo te ao”. He kōrero whai tikanga mo te mahi ngātahi, whanaungātanga me te whanau. Ko te korero o te Kaitohutohu tuatahi a Amberley Jo e mea ana,”ko te whakahaere auahatanga o te kiriata nei, ka taea tonu te mārea, te kitea ake te ao i  tipu mai hoki ia. I mahi ngātahi ia i te taha o te Kaituhi a Sam, ki te hanga ake he kaupapa pakari rawa, me tōnā tino māramatanga, koina, ka mau i te kanohi o te Kaiwhakawā.
