The feature film White Lies was based on his novella Medicine Woman. And his novel Bulibasha, King of the Gypsies inspired the feature film Mahana. His first book, Pounamu, Pounamu , has not been out of print in the 40 years since publication. He has also had careers in diplomacy, teaching, theatre, opera, film and television. In he became a Distinguished Companion of the Order of New Zealand the equivalent of a knighthood.
While much of his fiction is based on fact, it is not strictly autobiographical but is an imaginative recreation of places, people and circumstances. This was from the mids when there was a resurgence of Maori activism. Without them, I would have nothing to write about and there would be no Ihimaera. So this award is for all those ancestors who have made us all the people we are.
Ihimaera is a respected commentator on Maori, Pacific and indigenous peoples' affairs, and has been instrumental in ensuring Maori art and literature is supported. Our Lists.acorisoutun.gq

Never Should've Let You Go lyrics - Sister Act 2 Cast
It takes away the personal part of it. It was more just like losing my dad in general. The way that I would do things, the way that I would react to things, was because of that event, but I never really made that connection. And so I would be really hard on myself.
I've Been Thinking About You, Sister
When I got older, my mom would talk about it a lot, and helped explain to me why I was like that. And now I understand fully. I took pictures to accentuate my body, to get attention. I just wanted attention so bad. I appreciate my body way more than I used to.
