Hastings District Libraries and the French Association of Hawke's Bay present a talk by Jessie Munro, author of The Story of Suzanne Aubert.
During her exceptional life in New Zealand, Suzanne Aubert studied Rongoa - traditional Maori medicine, and successfully combined Maori and Western medicines - she was the first to commercially extract New Zealand native plants.
She taught, studied, wrote and published numerous works of Maori language. She and her Sisters opened the earliest childcare and disabled centres in New Zealand, a soup kitchen and a hospital. These services were open to everyone regardless of race or creed, free of charge.
