National Portrait – Jamie Tuuta, a young kaumatua – stuff.co.nz
28 July 2018
Jamie Tuuta is a man of many worlds.
He steps from one to another, his lexicon illuminating an easy comfort in the pub at Waitara, his marae in Urenui, the boardrooms of corporate New Zealand and the committee rooms of national governance.
His journey has been extraordinary, even if the man insists he is not.
It’s a journey that has taken a young Māori boy from a small rural Taranaki home crammed with a dozen whānau to a spacious office and role as chairman of Maori Television. There have been many other achievements along that path.
