Check out this awesome report one of the pioneering Pacific women in NZ!
Born in Samoa and migrating to New Zealand at the age of 10, Eleitino (Paddy) Walker moved onto becoming one of the founding members of P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A - the Pacific Women's organisation, who were instrumental in the 60s during the migration and settlement of the Pacific people.
A long-time advocate for Pacific Women in NZ, Eleitino helped pave the way for Pacific issues on a local and national scale, helped establish the Pacific Island Youth Leadership Trust, as well as being a leader in community education.
