Your kaiako/koka is Whaea Hera Tumai. Whaea has been making and involved with Korowai/Kākahu for most of her life and has been delivering this wānanga for years. 

This program is usually for Wahine wanting to quit smoking, but Whaea has decided to offer this wānanga wider, because the mātauranga and experience can help everyone, in their own and unique ways.
