Karen shared a moment

Karen Villarroel | May 2021

My blood is red, my skin is white.
My blood is red, my skin is white. My ancestors were "pioneers" who started to arrive here pre-Treaty. Although they weren't directly involved in stealing land nor killing "natives", their mere presence precipitated that. Now I get to enjoy living in Aotearoa. My blood is red, my languages include Maori.
