Meet Kisik & Anika

About Brooklyn

I'm Kisik Daniels.

For me it’s about family, THAT responsibility to me means everything, but how do you live a life of a superhero when all you have time for is homework, dishes and laundry. For me Fierce Girls is about standing up for myself, standing up for my friends and standing up for my people.

Kia ora!
I'm Anika Whatu.

OK, I’m shy in person and loud online… go figure, but for me being a Fierce Girl is about embracing the rebel, the geek, the YouTube drama queen, the awkward bookworm, and the kapa haka freak all in one.
Now THAT is lit!

A young advocate for clean water, equality for women and the fight against racism towards Indigenous people across the world; she is learning to use her passion and voice to make a difference.

Meet Anika

Anika Waikimihia affiliates to Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Pikiao, Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Kahungunu and Ngāpuhi.  She was raised in Rotorua but spends a great deal of time in the Far North. Anika is bold and believes in standing up to racism and sexism.

Active in Kapa Haka, tikanga Māori and sports she is unafraid to speak her mind, perhaps a little too unafraid. Yet being a huge advocate of Māori food sovereignty she is just as much at home with her plants who don’t answer back. She is a loyal loving friend of her ‘little Sis’ Kisik and believes all indigenous girls everywhere should stand up and fight against colonisation and sexism.
