Kia ora koutou katoa/Greetings everyone,
Iwi n Aus was created in 2013 by Erina Morunga (SA) and Filipa Payne (NZ) to provide information and education around migration issues faced by New Zealanders living in Australia.
Shortly after forming Maria Kumar, a Social Worker from Melbourne, Victoria, joined and formed a support network to help homeless New Zealanders affected by Migration Law.
Four years on Erina has become a qualified and Registered Migration Agent and now runs Morunga Migration while Filipa continues to advocate from Christchurch and Maria still continues her role in Melbourne.
The word ‘Iwi’ comes from the Maori language and is defined as tribe or group of people.
The name, Iwi n Aus refers to all New Zealand citizens living in Australia, regardless of cultural background or heritage. We wish everybody well in their search for stability, inclusion, and security as we aim to work toward a brighter future of equality, peace, and harmony for our future generations.
Nga mihi nui/Kind regards,
