This biography of Tariana Turia sees family members, iwi leaders, social justice advocates and politicians share their experiences of this remarkable woman.

While parliament was not part of her life plan, Tariana Turia was involved in many community initiatives. Here was a woman with the courage to care, the determination to speak up and a deep commitment to whānau. 

In her eighteen years as an MP, she advanced thinking in the disability area, advocated for tobacco reform and spoke out about sexual abuse, violence and racism. She also led the Whānau Ora initiative. In 2004, she crossed the floor, leading to the birth of the Māori Party.

Product Review

"Whatever one may think of [Turia's] politics, her determination to be true to her calling meant she left parliament with her mana not diminished but enhanced. This biography is a testament to that."Aaron Smale - Mana magazine
"Leahy provides readers with a penetrating account of the remarkable life of an indomitable New Zealander who effectively defied the entrenched party-political machine to bring about far-reaching change."Chris Moore - NZ Listener
