Most enjoyable international library project/projects:

I have attended the International Indigenous Librarians Forums, held every other year since 1999, and three WIPCEs/World Indigenous Peoples Conferences on Education. I am proud to be a member of Te Ropu Whakahau/Maori in Libraries and Information Management. I participated in LIANZA/Library & Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa and SLANZA/School Library Association of New Zealand conferences and spoke at Te Puna Matauranga O Aotearoa/National Library of New Zealand and Te Wananga O Raukawa, one of the tribal colleges.

Three words to new IRRT members: Celebrate community/collaboration/culture!
