This book acknowledges Te Reo Karanga o Wairaka – Tuu Puna, the Wānanga Karanga programme that has continued at Unitec from 2017 to 2022. The programme builds the capacity of kaikaranga and women in leadership at Te Whare Wānanga o Wairaka, and supports not only Te Roopu Mataara, our forum for Māori staff, but all staff and all students of Unitec. We have brought together a series of reflections by participants in the programme, some in the form of extended essays, some shorter prose reflections or poems. All the contributions express the powerful experiences of the authors as they came together for Te Reo Karanga o Wairaka – Tuu Puna. We begin with acknowledgements. What follows is a collection of kete that carry the reflections, each preceded by the pepeha of the contributor. May you enjoy these reflections from tauira wāhine who are staff and students, inclusive of other cultures and nationalities, as they acknowledge an aspect of their learning journey within karanga, another facet of who they are still ‘Becoming’.
