- 'she's doing really, really well'
Once she was known for being a children's TV presenter and wife to Paul Holmes. Now at 56, Dr Hinemoa Elder has found her place in the world as a psychiatrist, health researcher, successful author and proud Māori woman.
She will mark Matariki by taking the stage at M9, a new speaker and performance event.
Are you excited to be involved with the inaugural M9 event?
I'm so looking forward to it. M9 is the work of musician Ria Hall, who has put together an eclectic combination of Māori women to present a really extraordinary night celebrating Matariki and matauranga Māori. I'm honoured to be a part of it.
