[1993 is the centennial year of women's suffrage in New Zealand and also the United Nations' Year of Indigenous Peoples.
To mark the occasion, the Waiatarau- Freeman's Bay branch of Te Rōpu Wāhine Toka i te Ora (The Māori Women's Welfare League) in collaboration with Te Reo O Aotearoa, devised a radio series called "Maioha", looking at the lives and accomplishments of a number of Māori women.
Interviews were made in both Māori and English. The interviewers were Puhi Rangiaho, Tawini Rangihau, Hemana Waaka and Hēnare te Ua.
In this episode of "Maioha" we hear from Jackie Fraser (Ngāi Tahu) who hails from a family of strong artistic ability.
Jackie graduated from Auckland University in 1977 and has since held exhibitions of her works in the various galleries around the country.
Jackie has recently returned from France, we catch up with her and talk about her career in the world of art and her views on Māori women of today.
