Eruera Maihi Patuone from far north my extremely Great Grandfather.
Eruera Maihi Patuone from far north my extremely Great Grandfather. Mokeno Hau from Te Aroha my Great Great Grandfather. Both Chiefs Paramount Peacemakers. I'm also a 15th once removed cousin to Prince Charles. There is an abandoned castle in France named the Lamare castle my ancestors castle. I'm a 2017 New Zealander of the year 'Local Hero ' medal recipient. For making a difference in young peoples lives. A 21st Century Poet. I've been wanting to fulfill, revive my New Royal duty in honor of our ancestor Eruera Maihi Patuone. Bring his legacy alive again. The work he was doing in the 18th century is needed more today than ever before. Patuone protested against alcohol 🍸 and tobacco in the 18th century he also ordered alcohol to be emptied into the ocean as he could see the damage it was doing to his people. After my 4th Election defeat as an INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE I'm focusing on turning my 'Methamphetamine 'poem into rap music 🎶 the ultimate way to reach our youth. This is my Mihi, a fraction of it.
