Tui Marama Keenan, who is 40 years old, has spent eight years working as a police officer then an award-winning Zumba instructor even after being a mother to five young daughters.
The woman becomes a hunter for her family’s dinner on Friday nights every week after the dark.
Tui is from Gisborne, New Zealand prefers not to buy protein and meat from the market, and it’s surprising to see how customers are paying so much for chicken and other meats.
Tui prefers hunting deer, pig, rabbit, goat, and crayfish with her police officer husband spending $2 per bullet rather than spending $600 on meat for her family.
She says that she has a freezer at her home where she stores her hunt and is learning how to process them without wasting anything. Sometimes Tui also takes her girls who are aged from 5 years to 18 to trap possum or sell the meat as pet food.
As her eldest daughter doesn’t live with her, so she cooks meat for her four girls and husband every night.
She claims that she cooks everything from curries to seafood chowder, everything. The family saves around $200-300 every week just by avoiding to purchase any meat from the market.
She also claims how she swaps meat for other things with her friends like vegetables, nuts, and honey. Tui says that she can’t imagine how much she would spend on meat if she wasn’t hunting for her family.
Though she purchases all the staples from the grocery store, but other things are sources from extended friends and family. She wants every woman to know that even they can hunt.
The family’s life will be featured on the Maori TV’s Hunting with Tui where their everyday life and how can a person promote healthy families will be shown.
Tui says that she is blessed to have her daughters because they always help her around with processing the meat or putting it in the freezer.
She is slowly starting to teach them how to cook all the dishes. She also wrote about her passion and experience of hunting on her Facebook post. Slowly she has learned how to respect all the Kararehe while transporting or cutting them.
