Dia Dhaoibh and Kia Ora,
I am an Irish woman who has been living in Tamaki Makaurau Auckland since 2010 and have worked in the community sector for the last few years. My research is broadly interested in culture and justice, primarily focusing on the impacts of monoculturalism and what is needed in the personal, socially and professionally for non-Māori to be good Tangata Tiriti. I am also interested in the historic and contemporary impacts of colonisation on the Irish experience and our commonalities with many indigenous communities, with the added layer that in many places, people of Irish descent have contributed and benefited significantly from settler colonialism.
