I chose the Maori Queen for my hero. Her name is Te Atairangikaahu. She was born in May 23 1966 and past away in October 15 2006. She was the daughter of King Koroki Mahuta. She was the first Maori queen to be crowned in New Zealand. She was a good queen because she always fixed things up when there was something to be fixed. She was a good queen towards Maori.
