“In 2005 I saw Michael Campbell win the golf US Open. It was then I thought, ‘Wow, Māori can reach those heights.’”

Pro golfer Mauri-oho Stokes tells us about his journey with the sport and how he wants to see more young Māori experience the opportunities he has with golf.

This is part of our reo Māori series, Ohinga, created by Mahi Tahi Media, with funding from Te Māngai Pāho.

Stay tuned for a new episode every week.
