By Jim Marbrook

Ko Whanganui Te Awa: From the River documents the group of Maori mental health consumers from Awa Hikoi: The River Journey as they travel to Phoenix, Arizona for two weeks. In Arizona the Maori attend a consumer conference and share their experiences of healing and recovery, as well as, meet with native americans.

The Maori share with the native americans how nature aided their healing process especially the Whanganui River. The long distance separating the Maori from home begins to take a toll on their mental well-being and they rush to return home.
