Hamiora de Thierry

Kicked out of home at fifteen and raised on the streets of Huntly, Hamiora de Thierry is a street-smart guy with neat, sideways observations on what it means to grow up as a young urban Maori.

He’s a poet with a rapping habit setting his concerns to an inner beat, and happily interacts with the ‘Dope Generation’ (middle aged New Zealanders) about the struggles of being heard and understood when you are left out of the national conversation.

Harmz as he’s known, brings a young person’s take to the issues facing Maori who are young, gifted and side-lined and spreads a message of change to anyone willing to listen.
