This is The Wire for Rātū Tuesday the 17th of December Hakihea.
Tune in for a wonderful recap of our year;
In the Community Garden, we return to Rāhina Hauora (Part. I and Part II) to discuss the use of the Maramataka and Mātauranga Māori to heal the wounds of raupatu in Aotearoa. And to Wilde Projects about the intersections of colonisation, public form and queer ecologies.
At Green Desk, we return to;
Kauri Dieback with an interview done in March with Dr Mels Barton. Shark Scientist Riley Elliot about the global decline in shark populations and the demonization of sharks in media that has become common place in our discourse about oceans. As well as the largest scientific exploration incorporating mātauranga Māori within the discourse on climate change with Dr Huhana Smith.
and finally, although not present in the later wires of 2019, we return International Desk. Lisa brought us a huge amount of content and we return to stories of European Parliamentary ongoings and the international inability to commemorate the Tamil genocide.
Thank you all for tuning in and sending us your words of wisdom and feedback all year round.
A big thank you to all those who spoke with us for the show this year:
