Meet Te Hau, a young professional from north Brisbane with a strong passion for improving the health and wellbeing of Indigenous communities. Born and raised in the area, Te Hau has a unique background as the child of a Maori father and an Aboriginal mother from the Wakka Wakka and Cobble Cobble tribes, whose family hails from Hervey Bay. This connection to his Indigenous heritage has played a major role in shaping his career goals and aspirations.

Currently, Te Hau is working with the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health, where he has gained valuable experience and insights into the challenges facing Indigenous communities in South East Queensland. He is deeply committed to making a positive impact in this area and is grateful for the opportunities to learn and contribute to the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Through his work, and as a data intern with the ATLAS project, Te Hau aims to help bridge the gap in healthcare and other areas of concern for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
