Becoming self-aware through whakapapa and te ao Māori
Sapa is a small town up in the very far north of Vietnam. Rice fields decorate the mountain sides and are home to some of the most hard working, resourceful people I have met. Breath taking views and a humbling experience to learn the way of life here.

We went on a hīkoi (walk) from the town through the rice fields, down into the valley and were joined by 5-6 local girls and women
