“Ancient Wisdom and Modern Solutions”

Professional photographer Shaz Brikmanas feedback

July 31st, 2015

“Over the weekend I had the privilege to photograph the N.K.M.O.A. Hui-a-Tau (The National Maori Accountants Conference) at the Sky City, Hamilton. I truly feel blessed getting the opportunity to meet some wonderful people and to listen to some extremely talented speakers while I was working. One speaker who stood out for me was Ngahihi O Te Ra Bidois, an awe inspiring person & storyteller who touched my heart. Ngahihi opened my world with his words, he made me laugh and cry. This gentleman received a standing ovation, for a moment I forgot I was working and I too was standing and applauding with tears streaming, the hairs still standing from watching him perform an incredible haka. Every New Zealander needs to hear Ngahihi’s story or read his book Ancient Wisdom Modern Solutions”.
