"I did the whole, the key that was recommended by the doctors. I don't regret any of it now. But, I also did everything else that I knew would be good for me as a Maori person. As a Maori person we travel with our ancestral spirits, and we do that all the time, every ritual of encounter engages my ancestry. So even when we meet with other tribes I'm meeting their ancestors. Those who have passed on and we acknowledged those in word, but we also acknowledge the fact that, that they're behind us and then we also acknowledge the living, the people who are before you today. So our heritage comes from who we were and where we are today, so I knew that, that was always going to be there for me also."
