O le ala i le pule o le tautua
The pathway to leadership is service
An insight into honouring le vā

Jeanette Manu-Ettles, Angels Childcare

Wednesday 21 February, 7-8:30pm

As a Teine Samoa born in New Zealand I have always been in a space of three worlds,the world of the ‘palagi’ the world of indigenous peoples of Aotearoa and the world of a Samoan. Having experienced these spaces and worlds it has given me insight into the importance of honouring the relationships between myself and the three worlds.
My journey as a Samoan is mine alone, it is not the journey of all Samoans or all Polynesian people. This talanoa is about how I became to be in my identity as a New Zealand born Samoan and it is my journey in leadership within early childhood and beyond.
I have been in early childhood for over 20 years and I have kept my Samoaness with me the entire way through my career, this has been the pinnacle of my success and the foundation of my leadership within this space. I look forward to our talanoaga and our sharings about how we experience our journey through the value of relationships.

O lupe sa vao ese’ese, ae ua fuifui fa’atasi
We are from different parts of the forest but are connected in one cause
