“ Family Matters ” · NEW ZEALAND

Maori surfer Daniel Kereopa “DK” is not only won pro-waterman of the year, but is also a community leader and a father who is working hard to pass on the traditions of his ancestors to ensure that his kids know how to live a sustainable lifestyle that is in tune with the earth and the ocean that nourished and sustained his ancestors. In this Alison’s Adventure short episode, filmmaker Alison Teal sets off to New Zealand to team up with DK and through his story share the importance of the ocean, family and respect for nature.
