Debbie Broughton (Taranaki Iwi, Te Aitanga a Hauiti, Ngāti Porou, Ngā Puhi) is the author of the poetry collection The Ani Waaka Room (Te Tākupu Press; 2022). She has a Masters in Māori Laws and Philosophy from Te Wānanga o Raukawa, which informs her writing about the awesomeness of her ancestors, the realities of whānau life, and how the big picture impacts on the little. As part of Te Aro Pā poets with Rachel Buchanan and Hana Buchanan, Debbie tells the stories of her ancestors and their descendants, and reminds people that Papatūānuku still breathes beneath layers of concrete.
