Welcome to the Cultures of Change Podcast where we are having conversations about 'Healing Our Identity'. We bring you the strategies and conscious thinking for you to grow your confidence and understand your abilities to create the future that you choose.For much of my life I carried the feeling that I wasn't Māori enough, growing up in Australia disconnected from my country and being immersed in my culture… that was until I realised everything I was yearning for was within me. My ancestors are a long line of proud Māori, my mana is strong and I am enough. Hi, I'm Erica McCreedy, a proud Ngati Raukawa and Te Aitanga-a-Hauiti woman living on Yugambeh land. I'm a cross-cultural communication consultant and have worked with hundreds of First Nations people globally. I'm the co-founder of Cultures of Change and I'm passionate about supporting Indigenous women to find their inner wisdom. These conversations draw on the power and knowledge of the strong women who have walked before us, the strong women to come, and those that walk alongside us.

Healing Winds: Conversation with Peho Howden - S2, Ep 13
Kia Ora and welcome to this episode of the Healing Our Identity podcast. I'm joined by Peho Howden, a Māori woman who has spent the last 17 years in Australia, Gold Coast. Peho is the founder and creator behind Healing Winds. She's a natural born seer, traditionally known as a Matakite. She was initiated into her work by her Ancestors through ancient shamanic tikanga. Although she does not boast about this as she understands full and well, the responsibilities that come with her practice and her gifts.
"So, a lot of the time when I'm working with people, especially when it comes to identity, I am standing up as the conduit, not as the healer, I stand up as the pipeline, the instrument, the vessel, literally so, you may have heard it, you may have heard people say those words, when I am literally that, when people come into this space."
