Maraea Rakuraku

Maraea Rakuraku is a proudly indigenous storyteller who is very much shaped by her Tūhoe and Ngāti Kahungunu whakapapa and whānau i te wharua o Te Waimana Kaaku.

She has been described as powerful, epic and as a force of nature, all of which is reflected in her writing across reviewing (The Pantograph Punch, Theatreview), radio broadcasting (Radio New Zealand, Radio Waatea, Te Upoko o Te Ika), podcasting, playwriting (The Prospect, Tan-Knee, Te Papakāinga) or performance poetry (DuskyMaidensNobleSavages).
