Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Porou
He uri tēnei nō Ngāti Raukawa, nō Ngāti Porou anō hoki. Kua rua tekau tau neke atu a Hēni e tuhi ana, e whakamāori ana, e whakatika ana i ngā momo rauemi reo Māori huhua noa. He papakupu, he punakupu, he pukapuka kīwaha, he pukapuka whakaako reo ētahi o ngā mea kua takoto i a ia. Ko te nuinga o āna mahi, kei te ao mātauranga, engari he paku nei tana whāwhā i te ao pouaka whakaata, (he whakamāori motuhenga, he mahi tahi anō hoki ki ētahi atu ki te waihanga i te hōtaka Ihumanea mā Cinco Cine, Māoriland Productions), me te minamina o tana ngākau ki te takahi tonu i tēnei ara nui e ora ai, e ora ake ai te reo Māori.
Hēni has spent over 20 years writing, translating and editing a wide variety of Māori language resources. She has written or co-written a number of dictionaries, glossaries, books on Māori idiom and Māori teaching texts. Whilst the bulk of her work has been in the education sector, she has dabbled in the world of television (translating a number of documentaries into Māori, and co-producing Ihumanea for Cinco Cine, Māoriland Productions), and is keen to work further in this medium that has such a powerful role to play in the retention and revitalization of the Māori language
