Kaituhi | Staff Writer

Ana McAllister (Te Aitanga-a-Māhaki, Ngāti Porou) is a 24-year-old mana wāhine Māori intersectional feminist. Growing up as a self-proclaimed white-passing diasporic Māori, Ana has occupied both Pākehā and Māori spaces whilst simultaneously never completely fitting in either. Ana is a published poet, performance and installation artist, protest organiser, academic and researcher whose work occupies a complex space within Te Ao Māori; interweaving responsibilities to tikanga Māori, mana wāhine, with contemporary ideas of sexuality, modern cultural identities, and social media.
