Dr Diana Kopua

MBChB; Fellow RANZCP; Iwi: Ngāti Porou

In the mid-1990’s Dr Diana Kopua developed Mahi a Atua, an indigenous approach that responds to ongoing issues regarding institutional racism and inequity for Māori within New Zealand health services and society. The Mahi a Atua approach has been utilised by multiple practitioners across various sectors within New Zealand society including art, health, education, justice and the social services sector. Diana, in collaboration with her husband Mark Kopua, a tohunga and Tā Moko practitioner, are committed to indigenising their respective communities of practice and are pioneers within their fields.
