Tēnā tātou katoa,
Ko Mātaatua te waka,
Ko Maungapōhatu te maunga,
Ko Waikaremoana te awa,
Ko Tūhoe te iwi,
He uri ahau nō Ngāti Kahungunu ki te Wairoa, nō Ngāti Porou, nō Ngāi Te Rangi, nō Ngāti Pākehā hoki,
Ko Jordan Walker tōkū ingoa

I identify as takatāpui, and I'm also trans (they/them/ia).
My partner and I are expecting our first pēpē in July.
I'm a creative, a researcher, an arts and community advocate. I grew up in Tūranga-nui-a-kiwa (Gisborne) in Elgin: my roots have and will always remain there. I currently live and work in Gisborne, which means I get to see my whānau every day.

I recently stood for Council in the local body elections, and I'm standing now because I believe our babies deserve to have an equitable future full of happiness and abundance, with a thriving and healthy environment, and I strongly believe that the Green Party can get us there.

Tuia ki runga,
Tuia ki raro,
Tuia ki roto,
Tuia ki waho,

Ka Rongo te ao,
Ka Rongo te po,
Haumi e, hui e, taiki e!
