Local Focus A Tātau Kōrero: Jill Chrisp

In this series, we wanted to find out who are our people in Te Tairāwhiti 250 years after the arrival of Lieutenant James Cook and his crew on the Endeavour, and what are the things that make up our community including insights, reflections, views and opinions.​

Balancing the scales of fairness has been a driving force for Jill Chrisp. Much of her life’s work has been advocating at home and abroad for the rights of people who are disadvantaged or who do not have the luxuries that others have. Jill gives us an insight into her history as part of one of the settler families in Tūranganui-a-Kiwa, and talks about her passion for righting historical injustices​.
