Tangi has observed changes over a forty year period in housing, health and unemployment.

Tangi Teura is originally from Rarotonga but he has lived in Glen Innes for over forty years. He purchased his rented house from NZ Housing Corporation in 1986 which he sold eleven years later as his wife had passed on and his children were ready to leave home.
